- Writer Erik Patterson has said that with this episode, they "wanted to explore a family that was falling apart, through the lens of this kid who didn’t have the vocabulary to really deal with the emotions he’s feeling. He doesn’t know what to do with his rage, and it kinda drives him crazy. Anger can consume a person. Chad doesn’t know how to deal with his anger in a healthy way, he doesn’t know how to talk through his emotions, and he doesn’t have a support system."
