It could be another secret that would take another 13 buku to get to, like some clue atau an unknown secret about Count Olaf, atau the Baudelaire parents, but there is a fact I DO know, Lemony Snicket was madly in Cinta with a married woman named Beatrice. With lebih I found Beatrice is the Baudelaire mother. She is married, and I guess she is dead, according to the Beatrice notes in the beginning of the books. When the orphans find that one of their parents may be alive, I'm guessing it was the father, even though I do not know this.
Snicket was probably planning to write lebih than 13 books, and introduced the sugar bowl for the readers to be intrigued and read the seterusnya book. After a few buku anda can tell that he got tired of Penulisan the series, and anda can tell he is rushing a bit and ended the buku so suddenly sejak killing off Count Olaf, the main villain.
