The New Neighbour

Ethan from The Women In The Window and Emma from The Women In The House Across The Street From The Girl In The Window win the favor of the Annas, at their first meeting only. Both the Annas were in grief because of the loss of their kids, therefore when the neighbor kid shows up, they befriend the ladies quickly.

The Annas Are Too Similar

Yes, they are on pills, they are red wine ladies, they are a loner, and are under therapy. They are damsels in distress, miserable, obsessive, unstable, sick, judgemental, shallow ladies who from no angle gain any form of empathy. Further, these ladies are tech-savvy and enjoy playing detectives too, constantly spying on their new neighbors. In addition, they were habitants of an old house that squeaks a lot.

Also, both the Annas, don’t fail to humiliate themselves a number of times in the show.

They too hallucinate about talking to their family and it is due to their medication. This mental condition makes them, their own villain, proving them delusional numerous times and ultimately making them the wrong person in the show.

However, when the series and the movie come to an end, we find both the Annas proving themselves right and gaining apologies from the detectives.

The Extra, Reliable Guys

In The Women In The Window, we have David who is the tenant to Anna, and in The Women In The House Across The Street From The Girl In The Window, we have Buell, who is a handyman and also an informal housemate. They were reliable and good people to trust in the shows.

Earring Plays A Major Role

Anna from The Women In The Window finds an earring that presumed Jane Russell, aka Katie wore the day they met. While in The Women In The House Across The Street From The Girl In The Window, we see Anna find an earring of Lisa, hidden under the curtains from the scene of the murder. This proves that both the Annas were not at all hallucinating, they know what they saw.

An Extra Lady Fell Victim

In The Women In The Window, we have Pamela Nazin who was the executive assistant to Russell, who falls from the terrace and dies. On the other hand, we have Miss Patrick the school teacher who died after falling from a lighthouse in the supposed parody.

The Villains

In The Women In The Window, we have Ethan an almost 16-year-old teenager who is sick and takes the path of killing his birthmother, because he thought she, is not good. Similarly in the supposed parody, we see Emma planting her mother’s death because she was pregnant with a baby, and Emma never wanted a sibling.

Both Ethan and Emma attack the handyman in the shows, however, David dies, but Buell survives. Further both the villains want the damsel in distress to bear the blame. They lurk inside their old home and works with the evidence to put the blame on the Annas.

Likewise, both the content shows extreme struggle to survive the assumed murder sequence, also killing the kids at the end, whom the ladies wanted in their life when the show starts.
