This shows the sort of discrimination that goes on inside a family like this. Even though Birdie is really Coles sister, Carmen has sort of a disgust with her.

Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.
