** It would be very easy for Richard to use his son's mental/emotional instability against him ("his mum just died" etc.). Also, Andrew was keeping his telekinesis a secret from his dad. Pretty sure he wouldn't have wanted the police finding out about it.

* Why the hell would Matt and Steve not report Richard to the police for abusing Andrew? For two guys wanting to be a friend to the emotionally unstable outcast Andrew, that seems like the first thing they would be inclined to do once they find out about it.

* How did the lightning strike that killed Steve not kill Andrew. He's not invulnerable he was still hurt by the explosion at the gas station and as close as Andrew and Steve were the heat from the lightning should have fried his camera and burned him to death.

** He didn't ''already'' know about apex predators. He came across them in his research on natural selection. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oXDZMsjvUM The scene]] where he first mentions them begins with "I've been doing a lot of reading". Maybe if he had been researching pride or self-confidence, then he would have come across hubris.

** It does raise a similar question: why no references to StarWars beyond the red lightsaber toy? You think they would relish the idea of comparing themselves to Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, and the story does pretty parallel Yoda's speech about fear leading to suffering. [[ExecutiveMeddling Maybe they weren't allowed to make too many outside references to avoid legal attention?]]

** Given her illness, she was likely sleeping whenever the abuse happened, or her medication was strong enough that she wasn't lucid enough to really realize it. Or most tragically, she WAS aware, but due to her state she wasn't able to do anything about it.

Added DiffLines:

*** It's explicitly stated that the Pharmacy doesn't actually ''have'' the medication she needs; Andrew must pay $750 before they will even order it for next-day delivery.

* Wait, was Andrew's mom aware of Richard's abuse? I'm pretty sure both Richard and Andrew tried their best to keep it from her but I doubt she didn't hear fighting and yelling in the other rooms or notice Andrew's bruises.
