Asking the bartender questions

Scene shifts to O’Ryan’s Tavern where Jared and Michaela are talking to the bartender (whose name we learn later in the scene is Lois).

BARTENDER: Harv was in here all the time. Local celebrity, right? Lot of free drinks.

MICHAELA: He was here Monday night. Do you remember anything special?

BARTENDER: Monday? Yeah, he got hammered. Put on quite the show.

JARED: What does that mean?

BARTENDER: You know how the plane exploded a couple of days after it landed? Harvey claimed he knew it was gonna happen. Beforehand.

MICHAELA: He told you that?

BARTENDER: Only like four times. And not just me anyone who would listen.

Jared shows the bartender two photos.

JARED: This is Susan Creighton, Rick Moore. They were both here that night.

BARTENDER: Yeah, sure. They’re both regulars.

MICHAELA: Are you aware they both passed?

BARTENDER: Excuse me?

CUSTOMER: Hey, Lois, give me another. Hey, give me a second.

Lois walks away and waits on the customers.

Forming an hypothesis

MICHAELA: He called himself the angel of death. He must have thought it was connected.

JARED: What was connected?

MICHAELA: He told people about these callings, and then they died. That’s why he killed himself.

JARED: That’s crazy.

MICHAELA: What if it’s not, Jared? I told you about the calling. What if Harvey was right?

Disproving the hypothesis


Scene shifts to the police station.

JARED: I pulled the M.E. reports. Susan Creighton’s blood alcohol was 0.23. She should’ve barely been able to walk stumbled out into the street and got hit by a bus. Rick Moore. Training for a marathon, out on a five-mile run, drops dead. He had a massive arterial blockage. Mick, these people were going to die regardless. It had nothing to do with Harvey or what he did or didn’t tell them.

MICHAELA: How do we know it’s not the universe pulling the strings?

JARED: What does that even mean? Look, don’t let this guy get into your head. He was just a lonely, disturbed man.

MICHAELA: If something happened to you, Jared? Because of me? I couldn’t live with that, either.

JARED: I’m right here. Okay? I’m 100% alive.
