It matters that Madeline and Roderick are twins because of several reasons:

The assumption that they may have been conceived within a consanguineal line

The assumption that they "share the same inevitable fate"

The possibility that they will meet the same demise

They are reflections of each other

They are co-dependent and their melancholy is mutual

They are extensions of each other
