In Netflix's very funny depiction of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, we see a couple played by Cobie Smulders and Will Arnett who, in the end credits, are credited simply as
'Mother' and 'Father'. It is heavily implied that they are the protagonists' parents who were thought to be killed in a fire.
However, in the Miserable Mill - part 2, we see them knock on a very fancy door, behind which we see are
three not-previously-introduced children.
What are we meant to take this to mean?
The Baudelaire parents are alive and have had (or adopted?) three more children? If so, why haven't they tracked down Klaus, Sunny, and Violet yet?
The Baudelaire parents are actually dead and these people are strangers? If so, how do we explain their connections to the story of the Baudelaires?
This is a very frustrating dilemma, so any clarification would be appreciated.
