Before Leanne's incarceration[]

Mr. Taylor is seen during Leanne's baptism. When Leanne gives a brief speech on her time in the English world, Mr. Taylor tells Leanne to wrap it up. While walking outside, Mr. Taylor shows his love for his daughter, and explains how he would rather have her than 100 different, quiet, girls. Leanne is then stopped by police, Mr. Taylor's face drops. Leanne overhears her family discussing her and the trouble she has caused, spurring her to leave. One night, she looks at her sleeping family before leaving for good. ("Where My Dreidel At")
