Adele, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles
Adele (Kimberly-Sue Murray)
The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, a limited horror series, followed Lizzie Borden after she was acquitted of the murders of her father and stepmother. Adele was a street prostitute introduced in the second episode when Lizzie saved her from being abused by a client.
Lizzie rescued her and let her stay in her house. Adele developed a crush on Lizzie and they kissed while in a closet together. Later on, Adele was almost raped, but stabbed her assailant with a pitchfork, then panicked and got Lizzie who decided to just kill him.
Adele was next seen after she’d been locked in a coffin for a few nights by Lizzie as punishment, because Lizzie was worried that Adele wouldn’t keep quiet about the killing. Lizzie freed her the following episode, with a menacing “Promise me that you won’t misbehave again!”, and Adele agreed, crying. Adele’s former pimp showed up at the house, sending a terrified Adele into the back room, but he was only there to discuss “business” with Lizzie.
Adele started to get anxious and nervous when people kept asking questions about the missing man, prompting Lizzie to kill her by slitting her throat and killing Adele’s former pimp at the same time, making it look like they killed each other.
