Oh Leah, just when I was starting to come around on you, you pull that prank of trying to frighten Shaun into coming in the lake. At least she was supportive and whether or not her ideas were sound or ill-thought-out, she was there for him, and he seems to appreciate her friendship, so she didn’t lose all my good will.
Glassman is also a good support system for him, and while perhaps pushy and maybe projecting his own issues on Shaun, he certainly cares for him much more than his creep of a father did. Even though he may wrongly have thought Shaun needed closure, he certainly had good intentions with Shaun’s best interest at heart.
In other news, I found it a little funny that Melendez shut down the small talk during the procedure. These are people who are always having various discussions while operating.
