Rated M for language and adult content; 10,452 words

The concept of causation is an easy one: you track events back until you find the one pebble that started the ripple, the event that set off the chain reaction. Bruce can track his life back and back, from Detective Munroe’s appearance in their home, to Jessica Jones’s meddling, to a fire a few miles away, to his settled family life with Tony and Miles.

He’s not sure how the links fit together, or whether the chain might unravel.

But that’s never stopped him and Tony before, now has it?

In this chapter, Bruce discusses the Pierpont case with Jessica Jones and life with just about everyone else. None of these conversations are particularly reassuring..

Trigger warning for a brief reference to homophobia. Also, I know Miles is a bit absent from this chapter, but we’ll be seeing a lot of him in the upcoming chapters. His role becomes very important on many levels. Watch this Morales-related space.
