FANS of the A Series Of Unfortunate Events books were surprised to disbsci-ch.orgver that the new Netflix series had added a major plot twist.

You are watching: A series of unfortunate events are the parents alive


A Series Of Unfortunate Events introduces two mysterious characters known only as Mother and Father

Another said: “The plot twist about the parents in A Series of Unfortunate Events is so rude.”

Book readers will know that Mr and Mrs Quagmire are members of the same secret society as the Baudelaire parents and have a similarly large fortune.

Unfortunately Mr and Mrs Quagmire eventually perish in a fire, and Duncan and Isadora are sent to Prufrock Preparatory School – where they meet the Baudelaires.

The Baudelaire children were orphaned in a fire

It is thought that Quigley also died in the blaze.

In later books, the Baudelaires briefly believe that one of their parents survived the fire.

They find a page from a rebsci-ch.orgrd called The Snicket File which reads: “Experts now suspect that there may in fact be one survivor of the fire, but the survivor’s whereabouts are unknown.”

The children assume that this means that one of their parents might still be alive, but the page actually refers to Quigley Quagmire, who survived the fire that killed his parents.

It is also revealed that the Baudelaire"s mother is none other than Beatrice, Lemony Snicket"s former love.
