The Greater Good

Plot Edit

Sully seeks a priest's guidance as he grapples with a girl's muder.

Short summary Edit

Tatiana is still missing, and Sully continues to search for her while grieving her loss. When he comes upon the body of a six-year-old girl in a box on a curb, he becomes strangely unnerved. Haunted by this sight and by thoughts of the mistakes he has made recently, he takes the rest of the day off sick, and winds up in a local restaurant where he finds his parish priest. They ruminate on the nature of guilt, absolution, forgiveness, faith and the intercession of God as they recall the fate of another man who also made mistakes and tried to fix them, and whose life ended tragically at Sully's hand. Sully finally comes to a place where he can forgive himself and go on with life, and seeks out Davis to once again beg his forgiveness and reaffirm their connection to each other.
