This question contains spoilers…
(view spoiler)[Theo is caught by the police when they find the journal, 6 years after Gabriel dies. Alicia shot and killed Gabriel 6 years ago, that's when Kathy would have started being depressed and silent correct? But the way Theo explains it is that he comes home from the Grove and tells Kathy that Alicia is in a coma, and then mentions that Kathy "lately has been depressed and not talking"... why would she just now be silent? (hide spoiler)]
Brenda I believe she has been depressed and silent since Gabriel died. But, Theo was so absorbed in getting Alicia to talk that he was not noticing that his wife was in depression. It is like he put Kathy aside to put Alicia first. Only after moving back to his parents home did he notice more about Kathy. He would tell her about Alicia to get a rise out of Kathy but she did not rise to the bait. Just ignore him. At least when he was arrested she probably got her life back finally but slowly.
