Let's see if I can do this one without p*l*t*cs as well, shall we?
If he was wrong to go home - well, okay, game over. Same as if he had stayed in hospital.
If he made the right decision, in the sense that his recovery continues, he gets to look stronger by coming out earlier.
So I guess he's gambling on that.
What makes this so compelling is that it's so visibly character-driven. I would argue - not taking sides - that we're in the middle of something that has (will be seen to have had) all the character-driven inevitability that Shakespeare or Sophocles would have brought to the screenplay.
What's really challenging is to keep in mind that this is real.
We should wish him well.
Partly because we're all human. But also - what happens to us if we don't?
