Back with Neville and his bros, the solider that was shot at the Deer Hunter’s house lays dying. Neville gives him a drug that is going to put him “to sleep.” Where he’s going there is BRIGHT light. (No joke, Neville actually said that.) And the solider dies. They bury him and while Neville is saying a prayer over the body, Danny, kind of, smirks. Neville tells him to “Spit it out.” And something about speaking his conviction.
What? Sorry, I was thinking about Pizza.
Danny says “What”
Neville replies “If you think something, say it. You don’t like that I killed a rebel? The Monroe Militia is the only thing keeping order around here.”
Danny says “ I think you like to kill. Because you are a murderer and a psycho.
Neville snaps and chokes Danny. Finally, he lets him go and says “But I appreciate the honesty.” (I DEMAND THIS WRITER’S JOB!!)
hey, that looks like my backyard
Charlie and Nate have parted company, temporarily, I’m sure and Charlie wanders through an over-grown backyard and spies an old deflated basketball.
This triggers her to flashback to, conveniently, right where the last flashback ended. Charlie and her Mom are standing outside of a building with their luggage- a wagon of food and Danny, their personal albatross. (I’m telling you- the kids a crier! Lose him!!! Clearly he’s nothing but a headache.) Ben had to pick up some things from “work,” so little Charlie dribbles a basketball while she waits.
Playing with balls always leads to trouble
She’s no Lebron James and the ball gets away from her. As she chases it, a stranger steps out.
A creepy, sweaty, seemingly desperate stranger.
You mean, sweaty and desperate doesn’t look good on me?
He grabs Charlie and demands Rachel (Mom) give him the food… all of it. Otherwise he’s smash Charlie’s face in. Make him take Danny instead!!!
Back to The Now, suddenly Miles is there and he’s like “WTF are you doing here?”
You can’t take a hint can you?
Charlie tearfully explains that she can’t just wait for him to come back, she has to help. Danny is her responsibility, she was never supposed to let go of his hand. If she hadn’t been off sulking about her Dad banging Dr. Mom, maybe none of this would have happened. Ben would be alive and Danny would still be crying softly in his bedroom closet. She demands that Miles allow her to help.
Help me. This face illustrates the full extent of my acting range.
