Alex: Week 8

Directed by: Paris Barclay
Teleplay by: Bryan Goluboff

Alex’s father pays a visit to Paul looking for some answers after Alex is killed during a flight training exercise. He asks for a description of his son – not a diagnosis – and Paul says he thought Alex was struggling to find answers. Alex’s father reveals there’s a rumor going around that his son committed suicide; there’s an ejection seat and Alex didn’t jump. Paul asks if he thinks Alex’s therapy played a role in his death and the father accuses Paul of making Alex “look inside.” When the father breaks down over his guilt for pushing his son so hard Paul tries to assuage his grief and guilt, insisting Alex’s death was not his fault.
