Can you actually BLAME Maria for how upset she is? I mean in her shoes I'd be pretty PO'd too.
The part about David's dad?? It went a little something like this:
David's Dad used to go big game hunting for gemues - he considered them little more that slightly more intelligent animals - more sporting in the hunt...O_o So yeah on David's side I can REALLY see why he didn't want to just pop back in in his changed state.
