But when it comes to the officer's son, the one character who should have been at the very center of this emotional turmoil, we get Roddenberry's Box in action by showcasing Jeremy to be alright with his mother's passing.
I have to disagree with you here. I thought the portrayal was spot-on. When you unexpectedly lose a parent you do act cool and calm and there's alot to be organised. It is only later that it hits you and you break down, just as Jeremy did.

That said, I am reflecting on my experience as a 30 year old man, not an eight year old boy...
