Now that Gabe has moved out, Troy faces the reality that once again he is unable to provide fully for his family without the help of his disabled brother. Because of Gabe’s presence, the audience slowly learns that Troy is not the all-powerful patriarch that he claims to be. The incomplete fence represents Troy's insecurity and uncertainty.
