Cross confessed that he'd never forgiven himself for Lavender's death. O'Brien told him there were certain things that made him feel the same way.
At one point, I remember, we paused over a snapshot of Ted Lavender, and after a while Jimmy rubbed his eyes and said he'd never forgiven himself for Lavender's death. It was something that would never go away, he said quietly, and I nodded and told him I felt the same about certain things.
