Kevin knows, though, even as he's comforting the girls: "Tell me you didn't take her money. I begged you. I made you look me in the eye. Please tell me you didn't take her fucking money." Of course she took it. Kevin gets out of the car and just starts walking. And she's calling to him, and the girls are calling to him, but he just keeps walking. "Don't worry, he's just playing a game," Jackie says, lying as usual, but that's the garden of Eden. We're naked now: "Doesn't he have to be inside the car to play?" No. This one has different rules.
So how do you win the game? Do you pace him, worry at him, apologize, call Eleanor back on the phone and repudiate her and her lifestyle and the money, swear it'll never happen again? Would that bring the world back together? Or can the world go fuck itself, all of the worlds; can all of those things wait? Because the body's saying, "We're in trouble deep, girl," and "You promised to let nothing stop you getting home." The body's saying right now Kevin is expendable, because he's the only one that has none of her secrets. Of all the pressures, this is the easiest to bear. And every second that goes by, the need gets a little more naked.
Get ready for the finale by looking back at Season 1's craziest moments.
