He seems hrbsman be the only person that Savannah lives in small coastal Carolina town with her mom and brother Dog.

He leaves, she cries, her returns, she rejoicesgranted it wasnt all that simple and whatnot. Jackson was a one man army.

Jackson was much more interesting because he was not defined entirely by the relationship. Every scene was too melodramatic and I just wanted to turn the dial down a slight notch.
