Happy Monday, you luvverly lot.
Or, you know, not so happy if you're one of the Hunt brothers or a certain Tanner caught in the middle of this moment.
That said, you get the feeling that this whole scene could have gone a whole lot worse if Cortland was still the same boy Harvey made the choice to become a guardian of...

How are everyone's hearts doing? x

This page, all the pain and feeling of betrayal. It hurts.

well.. i think i agree with Harvey's move - he had to be clean to be a guardian, otherwise he would have gone to jail, and Cort into the system. anyways, this was just the kinda situation where whatever you do, it's wrong...

Why didn’t he tell him? Did he think he’d tell? He wouldn’t have told, and he would have felt better about himself. This is sad. I’m loving it, but I’m ready for some comic relief soon.

The words you're looking for are "I made a mistake and I'm sorry."

@DanishWolf: I knowwwwww. We need Ian to tell a dumb joke or something!

@portisHeart: It's a fascinating situation from an academic POV. Lots of ways to view it and I had so many discussions with people as I was writing this particular string of the story. And then of course Malin's inclusion of Ian's angle on things made it complete!

@Jeanettert: there are so many levels at play. We have to remember that Cortland was a very different person when this all happened...and that he'd trated Harvey terribly too. ON some level, maybe Harvey thought the responsibility would change his brother...but then years passed :( And yesssss, we need some dumb Ian jokes, right? x

Word Vomit cuz I Like Where this Is Going
Hmm Cortland didn't get convicted because of a loophole formulated by Connie. Harvey likely went to her about his part in Roberts' condition, and they devised the plan. In order for Cortland to be spared the worst Harvey would have to stay out of it. It's complex. If he hadn't, he could've been incarcerated perhaps inevitably leaving his brother to foster care since mom was clearly not well, or the brothers could both have been convicted.

Yeah, Cort was very emotional back then. At the time he was already blaming Harvey for things that weren't his fault - being attacked, being awkward, being the reason their mother was deteriorating... If Harvey had been honest with him, he likely wouldn't have understood the gravity and stopped trusted Harvey, and he needed Cortland to cooperate for his own good. For Cortland this present scene is a Much better reaction than he would've had. Cortland even now isn't interpreting it all that well. Harvey should be getting counseling for shouldering so much, but it seems...he's turned himself in? S***!

@Le9: This is a great word-vomit and a perfect observation, yeah! Complex is the word! And then we have to wonder...should harvey need to come forward? is it just too much for him to keep pretending - to anyone? It's hard to imagine ourselves in his position! 0_O
