Drew & Sam Chase After The Truth
Franco’s been tormented by his past since that blasted twin painting showed up, but for all his fretting over what he might have done as a child,
it was Drew’s life that was most affected by the fateful, mysterious fall down the stairs. So even though we weren’t sure what Harvey’s game was when he did it, we were thrilled to see him finally pull Drew into this story.
Having left Franco for dead in his trailer, Harvey feigned relief that he’d survived, then seemed all too pleased to tell Drew and Sam why Franco had been there to begin with! As the slimy developer repeated the now-familiar tale about Franco pushing his bestie down the stairs, we could see Drew weighing the story — and Harvey’s grotesque smile, no doubt. True, Drew didn’t trust Franco, but he still didn’t seem to buy the notion that he’d tried to kill him at just 3 years old. Ever-unflappable, Harvey shrugged and walked away, forcing Drew and Sam to follow.
After Harvey did his best to paint Franco as evil, the couple
couldn’t help but question why he hadn’t shared this story with them earlier. The fast-talker again offered his best spin, but Drew remained skeptical. While Franco’s guilt and fear made him an easy mark, the former Navy SEAL was a completely different animal. His hands in his pockets, he was literally looking down his nose at Harvey as he questioned the suggestion that Franco had threatened him.
Drew may not have been convinced, but Harvey’d left him with a lot to think about — and he went right to Franco to clear things up. Drew was finally in on the mystery… which meant this storyline was about to get a lot more interesting!
“He pushed me down the stairs and he wouldn’t share his toys? Franco really was a monster!”
