Hi there, I rarely ever post anything--but I LOVE reading all of your analysis!
Anyway, a thought just came to mind about the twist at the end. Remember when Reid is talking about having failed someone? What if the twist has to do with that statement? Maybe something like he was F1 and he chickened out or something...then he came back and proposed to her?
That statement just stuck out to me like a sore thumb. I thought maybe it had to do with his initial reaction to something. Just a thought.
