743312, I like adult Tyler the actor, adult Kirstin I don't love

because the fact is I don't understand how anyone who would send kids in as bombs. That doesn't make any sense.

But that really isn't a problem with the actors, that's a problem with the story.

I don't understand how Clark saw the kid as a menace before he set the plane on fire. I do understand how Tyler arrived at his outlook of the world. He had neglectful parents and the terrorist who grew into could have been fixed if he just had an engaged parent explaining what was going on around him.
