|Location||Charming Acres, Arkansas|
Owner of Harrington's
|Episode(s)||14.15 Peace of Mind|
Well, I like to think of myself as a 'kind of good' samaritan. You know, I've always been lucky. I've always had an intuition about what people were gonna do or say. Made me the king of poker night. But then, the mill shut down. And this town, the town I love, it started to die. And my sweet wife, she passed away. And the world kept getting worse. And they called it 'modernization.' And no matter what I did, people would turn to drink or drugs. They'd move away. They just weren't happy. Things kept getting worse and I started to hear noises. Voices. And I screamed at these voices! I said "Just make things better!" And you know what happened next? [...] The very next day, I thought - I just thought, "I wish there was more people in the soda shop." And I came in here that day and it was packed. And that's when I figured it out. I can make people do whatever I want.
