Spoilers for 'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 7
In this episode titled 'Cripple Creek' we saw Millie Manx (Mattea Conforti) stray away from her determined loyalty to her father. As Charlie Manx lay helpless (Zachary Quinto) through Bing Partridges' (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) torture, we saw Millie go on top of Candy Mountain in Christmasland, where she had earlier seen her mother and heard her call out to her.
As Manx struggles to live with the Wraith turned off by Bing, the lights in Christmasland start to flutter, and Millie decides to go see her mother for help. As mother and daughter reunite, Millie learns things about her father she never knew - the house holds his secret fears. Fans were elated that Millie finally is closer to the truth and cheer her on as she thinks about her mother's advice on leaving Christmasland.

In the home, Millie's half-dead mother is able to talk and shows Millie around the home taking her into a room who's closet housed another Millie. The Millie from the closet looked like the normal little girl with pretty hair and all her teeth which is a far cry from how the Millie from Christmasland looked with teeth missing and darkness in her. As dark Millie plays with Millie from the closet, she realizes she lacks freedom and her mother explains how her father had stolen Millie's life.
He had kept her a child forever in Christmasland so she doesn't grow up to be a woman as he was traumatized by his mother who was a prostitute. Her mother warns her that should Manx die, so will dark Millie and that she needed to find a way out of there now. "You better get your a** outta there, Millie because I ain't dying worth a sh*t. Father or not. #[email protected] @NOS4A2Fans", wrote one fan. Another replied, "Yeah she better think fast. Because she may never get that chance ever again."

We love to see it. #NOS4A2," wrote one fan. This is a huge deal because as Millie recalls her father only has one rule, and that is to never leave Christmasland. With Millie closer to the truth, fans are wondering if she will find her own Knife to be able to leave her father's Inscape, either way, the girl needs to get out. Now.
