What happened to Lauren Blackwell?

Did Lauren go mad after her revelations with The Countess? Is that why Joey tried and failed to leave her, the host?

In the game Lauren seems seriously depressed, did that episode send her in disparity so far she became teutonic?

Spoilers!!






As far as I've understood mediums need to be bonded with their spirit guides, and they need to free ghosts on a regular and frequent basis. If they do not do so, then - according to Madeline in "The Blackwell Convergence" - the portal to the afterlife essentially floods their head with the universe, and the human mind can't take that. That causes the insanity.

In the Countess's case, she had somehow broken her bond with Madeline, which drove her mad. Lauren stopped saving ghosts altogether in order to take care of her niece, when Rosa's parents died in a traffic accident. As a result, she went mad.

As for why Joey couldn't leave Lauren, I imagine it was the same reason as when she was sane. A spirit guide can only move about 30 feet away from his host. As long as Lauren wasn't dead, he was stuck within that radius.

Lauren never went map, she simply stopped helping spirits, and according to Joey, there are consequences for stopping. Lauren decided that she wanted to take care of Rosa instead of continuing with her life as a Medium.
