However he reacted and appeared, I think he was coached from somewhere ---
"No matter what, be the master of your own destiny".
Too bad he also got a dash of, "It's okay to go crazy on them."
(Either that or he thought that up himself while off his meds.)
I felt, up to the very end, that he was working some kind of a personal script, right down to the foreshadowing.
Anybody else see it that way?
