We talked about various possibilities, including the “gas leak trap,” to be things that softened JJ up, but as for how he would die, I think we were pretty clear on that as soon as we started taking about it. That’s your poetic destiny rushing up to meet you, Just Joe.

I would probably give Shanna 1 in 4 odds even if JJ were fresh. One of the things this story gets into is that whatever else you can say about a gun, it’s a great equalizer. But doing it like this makes the moment feel more logical, more inevitable.
