So Mike already pointed out that Charles and Parcher aren’t actually Present. So I think that’s one example. But I think we can find an example of Charles, Parcher, and Marcee all influencing John through the Present.
Marcee is the easiest because we’ve already discussed it. I think seeing that she is presently the same age she’s always been kind of works.
How does Charles influence him through the present? I don’t remember the scene very well, but John is banging his head against the window, freaking out, and talking about quitting. What does Charles do?
