The cops are questioning Archie. He doesn't look like the cop-killer type -- whatever that is. He does stare intensely ahead. Seems like a bit of a loon. Daghlian says he's spent a lot of time in jail. He says that was "before." Crowley: "Before you found Jesus?" Archie agrees, and quotes, "'For I shall redeem you, with mighty acts of judgment.'" That's from Exodus 6:6, I believe. Daghlian holds up his hand in a "spare me the sermon, Reverend Freakshow" gesture. Will's watching the interrogation through the window. Daghlian and Crowley take turns playing Exposition Fairy (maybe that should be Exposition Fuzz), saying that Crowley got out of jail ten months ago after being incarcerated for nine years, and got stopped by a cop for speeding. Daghlian: "Maybe you got something in the car you shouldn't have?" Crowley: "Say, a 9 mm?" Daghlian: "So it's either take out the cop, or it's back to Jessup." Daghlian tries to appeal to his fear of eternal punishment. Archie says it's between him and the Lord. And, apparently, the guy in the next stall in the john.
Kevin's painting his little soldier figurines or models or whatever in his room when his mother comes in to confront him about the burnt scrapbook. She asks mildly, "Can you explain this?" Kevin: "Uh, yeah, I ran out of lighter fluid. If I'd had more, there wouldn't be anything left of it at all." Helen says, "This is very hurtful." Kevin: "Tell me about it! It's full of pictures of somebody who doesn't exist anymore. The son Dad really wanted." Helen's exasperated. She plops down on his bed and says, "Honey...you know if he could, your father would change places with you." Kevin: "Well, at least that's something that hasn't changed." Kevin says he was living Will's dream: "Big high school jock, college scholarship, headed for the pros. Everything Dad always wanted for himself. Then I went for a ride in a car and screwed it up for both of us." Helen: "You're blaming him for having memories. Good memories of the feelings you used to share. That's what he misses." She stands up, picks up the scrapbook, and adds, "That's what you threw in the fire."
