* EasilyForgiven: At the start of the series he's one of the most reviled men in all of America, even the police want to kick his ass. Then he cries on TV and people tweet with the hashtag #forgive so much it trends and apparently that means he's been redeemed.
** "End of the Road" makes a distinction here: as a celebrity, people idolize him. As a man, they still hate him.
