Sean appeared at ease where he was, but Dr. Archer is doing all in his power to free him. Dr. Archer feels responsible for his son’s current condition, which he believes is a reflection of his inability to properly care for him. He feels too embarrassed to even consider agreeing to Sean’s incarceration, Because of this, Dean does not discuss his son’s time spent in jail with anyone, not even Ethan, who is his most closely connected mentee. When Sean is brought to Gaffney following a brawl in jail, Dr. Archer is unable to keep the truth about his son a secret as he notifies Ethan about Sean’s incarceration at the same time.
