In the next scene, Christopher explains to Henry what was going on with the stolen car. He says that he didn’t steal it, his friend did, and he had just taken it to town and just ditched it. Not a wise move, by any means. And I’m not even sure if I believe him, considering that he had stolen Lee’s pocketwatch.
It all worries Henry. “I just don’t want you ending up like me,” Henry tells him. It seems neither one realizes quite how obsessed Bill is with the stolen car mystery.
