Wow, the ending to Junkyard Dogs was heart wrenching.
Jay’s not a bad sort, all things considered. Scotty could have done far worse. And ultimately, Jay’s involvement in Monty’s life, however brief, sent him down the road that would help him find his life’s work.
On a completely unrelated note, I’ve got to ask, what did you think of Scott’s portrayal in TNG’s Relics?
