Troy and Cory have a final showdown. The complete destruction the American dream occurs during Cory and Troy’s battle in the front yard. Cory is blunt in forcing Troy to confront his own inadequacies and yet it is Troy who is still the more powerful man. In this scene Troy becomes his father. He kicks Cory out of the house just as his own father kicked him out of his boyhood home. In a cycle, Troy has become the thing that he hated most.
