Played by Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders and credited simply as "Father" and "Mother" respectively, they calmly assess their predicament and resolve to get home to their kids. As the show presents it, there's only one conclusion: the Baudelaire parents are alive.
While their children were at Briny Beach, Bertrand and Beatrice perished in a fire in their mansion.
After their parents are killed in an unexpected fire, the Baudelaire children quickly become the Baudelaire orphans. They are sent to live with their closest living relative who happens to be the mysterious and devious Count Olaf.
Olaf did burn down the mansion but the Baudelaire parents' death had nothing to do with the fire, as at least one of them escaped the fire. Olaf was coerced into killing the Baudelaire parents and was only an accomplice to the murder.
And the big question, did the Baudelaires survive fleeing the island? Yes, and they lived on to raise Kit Snicket's child to be a new kind of volunteer.

Count Olaf is either a fourth cousin three times removed or a third cousin four times removed of the Baudelaire children; it is unknown which parent he was related to. Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire adopted the daughter of Kit Snicket, whom they named after their mother.
One popular fan theory is that the Baudelaire fortune is the remains of Count Olaf's fortune, stolen by the Baudelaire parents and Kit Snicket after murdering his parents, which would explain Olaf's personal vendetta against the Baudelaire family, why he seems to live in poverty despite being royalty, and the motive ...
