He did a good thing there. Athena needs to remember May had this experience with the traffic stop, and it is her story to tell, her emotions and fears to work through, and her feelings to sort out. With her mom also being police, that makes her thoughts and feelings even more complicated. It's good that May is talking about it, even in essay form, because it wasn't something she could just move on from. I like that they are showing the longer lasting repercussions, and aren't just sweeping that traffic stop under the rug.
