Ben thanks Michaela
Scene switches to Ben’s kitchen where TV is on in the background.
KELLY: [ON TV] Of course we were confused.
MICHAELA: What, you cook now? Just when I thought things couldn’t get any stranger.
BEN: Hey, thanks for the jail hookup.
Ben keeps Michaela informed
MICHAELA: How is Radd’s son?
BEN: His face is bashed in. It’s not safe in there.
MICHAELA: Yeah, well, if he gets convicted and goes upstate, the place he’s at now is gonna seem like a country club.
BEN: I so want this kid to be innocent for his father’s sake. Hey, can you pull the file and see if the cops or D.A. cut some corners?
MICHAELA: So it’s the the police’s fault?
BEN: I’m just spit-balling here.

Ben seeks understanding
BEN: Doesn’t seem fair that that flight may have saved my kid’s life but threatened someone else’s.
MICHAELA: You heard something like last time.
BEN: Not exactly. But whatever that was, whatever this is, I’ve got to get to the bottom of it.
BEN: It isn’t about solving a puzzle. This is understanding what my life has become — our lives. If we can’t answer that, we’re never gonna be able to get back to normal.
BEN: No. She has enough going on.
