What happened to Dave?!
The declining health and human qualities overtaking the angelic ones were in full force on Kevin (Probably) Saves the World Season 1 Episode 14, and frankly, I'm concerned for our warriors of God.
To make matters worse, Yvette is still insistent that she and Dave keep the truth from Kevin.
Am I the only who didn't realize that Tyler and Kevin were friends their entire lives? It didn't come across that way when Kevin came back into town. It felt like they were acquaintances at best.
It didn't even appear as if Tyler was in school with the twins and Nate around the same time. Perhaps that's an oversight on my part.
I loved how their friendship quickly developed throughout the series, but it came as a surprise to me seeing flashbacks of 8-year-old and 19-year-old Tyler and Kevin interacting.
I gather, by the hour's end, that was the point. It wasn't that Tyler and Kevin were never friends, it was that Kevin was never a very good one, to begin with. He was self-absorbed, and he took Tyler for granted for years.
I'm not a good friend. I've taken you for granted for a long time.
Kevin Permalink: I'm not a good friend. I've taken you for granted for a long time. Added: February 20, 2018 Tyler is such a sweet character. On the surface, it's easy to write him off as naive because of how happy-go-lucky he is, but he knew that ever since they were kids, Kevin was a crappy friend.
The only reason he gravitated towards Kevin upon his return was that Tyler is a good-natured person--he picked up on the dark place Kevin was in initially, but he also was attuned to the progress Kevin was making (and has made).
As tough as it was watching these two buddies be at odds, it was an important part of the show's narrative and Kevin's character development.
It was an unbalanced relationship, and Tyler deserved better. I respect and love the fact that he stood firm in his stance until Kevin approached him the right way.
So let me get this right, you want me to invade Tyler's privacy to show you moments you were too self-absorbed to notice the first time around?
Yvette Permalink: So let me get this right, you want me to invade Tyler's privacy to show you moments you were... Added: February 20, 2018 Kevin went out of his way to win Tyler over with childish or impersonal gestures that came across as gimmicky and impersonal.
The writing should have been on the wall for Kevin when he couldn't think of something that Tyler would like or a special memory that meant something to Tyler without manipulating Dave into helping him.
In the end, all Tyler needed from Kevin was an acknowledgment that he was a crappy friend, not just that one time, but their entire lives, and he needed a promise that Kevin would do better.
It was such a relief when Kevin finally admitted to all of that and the two made up. A smack on the lips and a be..
