Jim begs Franco not to hurt him and reminds him of all the good times they used to have. Franco doesn’t appreciate his dark sense of humor and wants to talk about what really happened. He wants the truth and then he’ll kill him. Jim says Franco pushed Andy because he hurts people. Franco doesn’t believe it. He remembers being left alone with Jim, who would come and see him in bed when Betsy was away. Jim denies it but Franco gets more distraught as he explains that he pushed Andy to get him out of the house, so he wouldn’t be molested too. Harvey insists that all he ever did is love him. Getting more distraught, Franco throws a pad and pen and Harvey and demands a full confession. Harvey scribbles one, listing all the kids he molested. Franco promises to kill him quickly and points the gun at him. Jim claims the other victims deserve to see him go on trial and go to prison. Killing him will just make him a victim and Franco a killer. Franco thinks of Liz and lowers the gun. Jim laughs and then starts to wrestle him for the gun. After Franco drops it, Harvey chokes him until he passes out. Straddling his body, Jim cries that he was a bad boy. Drew shoots him in the back.
