Ash Wednesday Flashback
This is the scene that takes place three years before the main story, where we learn why Sean had to leave town. It may sound strange, but this is one character I'd really like to ask Elijah about, as far as how he understood him. In this scene especially, innocent and oblivious Sean doesn't seem nearly as innocent or oblivious as his family believes him to be. They may have thought that if they sheltered him from the "family business," he'd be the one to break out of it. But is it really possible to hide something like that? Sean's concerned here, certainly, but he's not shocked or startled. Somehow, I think if I overheard some people plotting to kill my brother, my first reaction wouldn't be to calmly go shoot all three of them while they're in the bathroom. Perhaps all that the "sheltering" accomplished was to keep Sean from learning how to be smart in situations like this.
The cinematographer was in charge of this scene, and it shows. The grainy picture and the yellow-shifted coloring make it seem more like watching a memory. Like a good camera operator should, he knows just how to shoot Elijah's face, putting the planes and curves to good use especially in the close-ups. One thing I find interesting is that in the long shots, Sean seems more like a "normal guy" tending bar. But when the camera pulls in, he's anything but; that's when we see the thought process that he keeps so carefully under control.
