When we’re young, we have plenty of fight in us.
As we get older, we get knocked around. We become less inclined to put up our dukes.
Hell, sometimes if someone is willing to fight you for something, it’s easier to just let them have it.
We can tell that Cole is equally happy to see his ex-wife because he misses her. He drinks in her presence like a thirsty man might drink water.
But he also doesn’t want to fight her. So he lets her have the case, no questions asked.
Rusty still has some fight left in him. Why do you think that is?
And who is right? Cole or Rusty?
