I know this is the dumbest thing I ever thought of but I had to share it. After listening to the audiobook of the Road and No County I had the insane idea that the father in the road is Chigurgh. I know I know flay the soles of my feet and leave me to hoof it but this line among many others prompted the idea:
This has been a long time coming. Now its here.
This coin has been traveling twenty two years and now its here.
I understand that this wouldn’t really make sense considering the wife and what not but thematically at the least theres a shred of ol Anton in the man when he tells the boy he cant take any chances. Ah I don’t know I have to think about this for a while.
