What about the role of Nathan, Sr. in each of the character's consciences?
Nate's behavior? Rico's?
Claire seeing her aborted son in her dream of the afterlife? Her facial expressions then and every point up to it when confronted with her baby niece? Her uncontrollable sobs at the wedding?
And what about that beginning? I liked it very much, because it resonates with one of the themes and fascinations of my life - the impact of the slightest decision on broader events, and the interconnectedness of those decisions..it also reinforces one of the themes of the series which is...death is always just around the corner. How do we live in the face of that fact?
