Man, this is really his episode. He is a fucking heartbreaker the entire time. It's worth watching this episode just to watch him go, he's that good. This good at being wonderful. I'm not sure where Shane ends up but Silas is the man he's going to be. She burnt him strong. So he yells and turns the radio off again and refuses to contribute to the cash stash. "No! I'm not ruining my life because of him. He made the mistake. No one's looking for me." Silas loves his life. His mother can't imagine it. Nancy gets full-on pissed this time, and pulls off.
"You're right, Silas. No one's looking for you. They will be looking for you, if they can't find me." It's not the words, it's the tone; Andy takes a warning tone and tries to calm her down, but it's too late. And the more she talks the more ashamed she gets.
"No. He's old enough to decide for himself. I'm not gonna drag you along with me. Just know, if you get out now, it's not like you're gonna be able to live a normal life. You're still gonna have to run for... I don't know how long. You might have a better shot going solo. So you decide. You're gonna be a lone wolf, or you're gonna go with the pack."
Shane howls. Somehow his mother does not bash him in his fruitpunch mouth.
"I will ask you as your mother, who wants you to live, that you never go back to Ren Mar. Or anywhere, really, in the San Diego area. Or Mexico. Probably not Los Angeles..." She can't even look him in the eye. He refuses to start crying, and when he takes off his seat belt she can't even take it. And when he slams the door closed again, and Stevie starts to cry, he produces a huge wad of cash Lupita gave him. "Oh," Nancy's impressed. "Wow, Lupita. That was nice." Silas closes his eyes and cries and doesn't know how to feel and hates the fact that he's not leaving just as much as he would have hated leaving.
Another point for Nancy. Little wasp-eggs in your head. Not free enough to run away and not trapped enough to break out, just like Guillermo or Conrad or anybody else. It's the way she feels, all the time. Caught between the love of his life, loving it just as it was getting started, and the love of all of them.
