From the immediate beginning, the show has commanded our respect. Eddie's eulogy had us laughing and crying right alongside the attendees, and watching him choke out his final and powerful line, "John, you say everything happens for a reason. I can't find a reason for this" had us all done for.
Like most of the emotional moments resulting from this show, it was hard differentiating whether the cause was heartwarming or saddening. Seeing Rome and Eddie step in for John was some "bro-code" magic. Magic that brought the welling of tears to eyes, while Sophie's sudden revelation that her father hadn't forgotten her was the last and final straw to break the tearful barrier.
Maggie: Maybe he just lost sight of the horizon. I was watching this documentary on JFK Jr. You remember when his plane went down? ... Anyway, Kennedy was a novice pilot. He was flying at night, and the clouds came in, and his instruments were telling him which way was up, but he didn't trust them. The truth was right in front of him, and he couldn't see it. He lost sight of the horizon and nosedived, and by the time he realized what was happening, it was too late, and he couldn't pull up. Gary: What does this have to do-- Maggie: That's depression. Now maybe he wasn't depressed; maybe something else was going on. People keep secrets from loved ones, and sometimes, you don't even know they have these secrets until an event like this happens.
