Just wanted to recap on the IC throughline so see if I have it right:
State of Being
Sense of Self
Peter (IC) influences other characters (but particularly the MC) to remember something by the actions he takes OR Peter remembers something important and makes a booking at his favourite Michelin star restaurant to celebrate the anniversary of his last divorce.
State of Being: Peter demands a perfectly cooked steak be made for him at the Michelin starred restaurant (implying his ego is big) where the MC works. The MC cooks the steak and she gets nervous that he will not be happy no matter what kind of streak he gets.
MC cooks Peter's steak.
Situation: Peter is not happy with the quality of the meat the restaurant has served him, and makes a massive scene in the restaurant, which brings utter embarrassment to the MC and all the guests start talking and complaining as well.
MC comes out to calm Peter down and explain the meat is fresh.
Circumstances: Upon finding out that the MC took delivery of the meat that morning, Peter starts questioning the circumstances of the kitchen. Was the fridge cold enough, was the cooking temperature the perfect temperature. Everyone starts getting annoyed and finally the MC chef yells at Peter to pack up and leave immediately.
Sense of Self: On the way out the door, Peter has a heart attack. They all look at the MC as the guilty party who brought on Peter's heart attack, and the MC worries that maybe the meat killed him...(only later does everyone find out that actually, Peter was heading for a heart attack anyway due to blocked arteries and chronic stress levels).
