Julian has been angry about Jericho’s return, almost like he doesn’t want it to happen. It seemed to remind her of something, and she didn’t really care if the resurrection meant the world to Dorothy or Sean. However, it turned out that there were some selfish reasons behind all their animosity, and now, Leanne is able to extract it as they bond closely after the Marino disaster. He gets a glimpse of his past because he’s on the edge of his wits trying to figure out Uncle George, the Church of the Lesser Saints, and how to fix his sister’s sanity.

Julian plays a voice memo for Leanne, revealing the day Dorothy forgot Jericho in the car, exhausted from being a new mom, called him to babysit. She wanted him there because Sean dumped her and took a job in Los Angeles to escape the stress of parenthood, but Julian didn’t show up. Instead of helping his sister, he got high on a stash of “good stuff” from his drug dealer, which kept him away for days.

When he came to and tried to communicate with Dorothy, tragedy had already struck, and since then, he has blamed himself for the disaster. He felt that if he hadn’t lost himself, the baby would still be alive and his sister wouldn’t be mentally broken. As such, aside from his anger, Julian is always trying to forget his problems and move away from guilt. Unfortunately, drinking is his solution, so he switched to binge drinking.

She admits that it is the only way to process and deny guilt, especially since Dorothy doesn’t realize she ignored her that fateful day. But whatever happens, he keeps holding on to his sister’s voicemail. This also explains why Julain is an atheist, as he is trying to help his family get the baby back using the supernatural game that the cult and Leanne are playing. In the end, no matter how much the child reminds him of his failure as a brother and uncle, he wants his family to be happy and the opportunity to absolve himself of the shame he feels.

Starring Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, Nell Tiger Free, and Rupert Grint, the second season of Servant airs every Friday on Apple TV +.
