True ... seems like a definite set-up.

That is perhaps the worst part of Neil's personality.
I finally got the tape from Pat, and watching the final episode, it is so
clear to me that he was on a self-destructive path ... and while he did get
a sense of perverse pleasure out of it, it was horrifying to see him as
the *only one* who saw truth...

After so much time in the "business" he should not have been that way ...
but perhaps that is what we are to conclude .. there is something
non-standard about him.
