Your thoughts about how Roy/Aaron ended things? Did he not care if Melvin died?

Charlene (charlenethestickler) | 1379 comments I think he had some tiny bit of caring for Melvin, since he did put the library card in Decker's pocket. Roy/Aaron also walked out to blow the group to smithereens away from the house. Meeting Melvin and Decker seems to have brought to life that tiny spark of humanity in the otherwise very cold killer.

I don't think his feelings changed about Melvin. In the end, I thought he led Decker to that evidence not for Mars but to bring down the Three Musketeers because he loathed them and wanted payback.

Charlene (charlenethestickler) | 1379 comments No question about that, Jonetta, but he didn't wait for the guys to come in after him and risk Melvin and Amos getting killed. Maybe it was Decker's presence, as you note (and not Mars' especially) that led Roy/Aaron to walk out before blowing himself up.

It was just something I was unsure about.

Charlene (charlenethestickler) | 1379 comments Me, too, after I considered your opinion above. :)
