Alex: Week 7
Directed by: Paris Barclay
Written by: Bryan Goluboff
Alex insists he's ready to return to active duty and Paul challenges him suggesting his guilt is still a problem. Alex tells about his son Roy’s party where he played chess with his son. When Roy suddenly said he didn’t want to play anymore and retreated to his room, Alex went after him but his father intercepted him and said the reason Roy quit was because he didn’t want to beat his father in front of everyone – and attacks Alex for becoming soft. The experience made Alex realize he needed to return to his marriage and to the military for the structure they offer. When Paul urges him to stay in therapy and deal with his issues before returning to duty, Alex challenges him: “Are you telling me not to fly?” But Paul won’t tell him what to do.
