|Michael (Jason Butler Harner) and|
Daniel (Cheyenne Jackson)
The mere fact of the allegation turns most of the town against Michael, and against Daniel by association, but of course the protagonists have some prejudgments of their own against some of the townsfolk. The characters are well drawn, as Daniel chafes at the provinciality of his surroundings, and then reels at the unexpected revelation of something from Michael’s past. Michael, for his part, digs in his heels, refusing to believe that a false accusation — even compounded with an out-of-context embarrassment from years ago — could go anywhere, and bewildered that the situation seems to be driving a wedge into his home life. Well done, highly recommended.
