‘The Haunting of Hill House’: What the Crain Children Really Represent

Slide 1 of 7The Five Stages of Grief

In the show, the main character of the Crain family is comprised of two parents (Hugh and Olivia Crain), and the following five children

Steven (Michiel Huisman) – The famous paranormal theory author who doesn’t believe in ghosts. 
Shirley (Elizabeth Reaser) – The stern mortician who has a family of her own. 
Theodora “Theo” (Kate Siegel) – The child psychologist with ESP powers activated through physical touch. 
Luke (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) – One of the young twins, who struggles with drug addiction. 
Eleanor “Nell” (Victoria Pedretti) – The youngest twin who has a sleep paralysis disorder

The working theory (posted over at Buzzfeed) is that each of these Crain children represents one of the “Five Stages of Grief” – i.e., the established psychological process for how (most) people deal with the intense grief and loss associated with death. If you don’t remember, the five stages are (in order): 

Denial
Anger
Bargaining
Depression
Acceptance

Not only that, but the theory goes further to say the ordering of the stages of grief is matched perfectly to the order of the Crain children‘s birth! Read on below to learn how each Crain child supposedly matches up to a stage of the grieving process:
