Here’s an article I believe is from @JBarker
He agrees with you about Charles showing up, or the schizophrenia kicking in, as the first driver. I’d like to watch the first act again, myself.
Also, I meant to point to the action of rcvg the award as a final action driver. Pointing out the decision before that was meant to show that the action concludes the decision making. Before that, I don’t think John decides Marcee is real so much as it hits him that she’s not and he just sees it. An action. And again, that action brings an end to Alicia’s decision to leave him.
