hey I know I'm not an active user here but I do read the pages and I like the content and effort you guys all put into making things look great!!
So my theory is that Ma Petite may not actually be dead. I don't know if the creator himself confirmed it or not, but at the end of the episode they showed her inside of the jar at the museum. For that to have happened, that means Stanley and Maggie both made it out of the freakshow WITH her body and traveled to the museum, but they only showed HER instead of a collection.
Stanley doesn't seem to just want one corpse, he seems to want several. For them to be at that museum with her body, they would have to have completely abandoned Jimmy and Elsa, which doesn't make sense yet because Maggie seems to love Jimmy and Elsa would be suspicious if Stanley randomly disappeared.
My theory is that Ma Petite is actually not dead. I think it might be a cleverly made dream sequence or something. For her to be in that jar so soon doesn't make sense to me, leading me to believe that Dell might have actually thought out everything beforehand. If it IS a dream sequence, the episode could pick up with her being hugged and he might just put her down.
or maybe I'm telling myself this so that it eases the sadness of losing such a cute and innocent character :(
