That goes to show you, there is no perfect plan to keep anyone from blowing up; so no, I do not think that there was another way to take care of the situation that would have prevented someone from getting pulverized by Alex.

I agree with others, if it hadn’t have been this it would have been something that Natalie had less control over.

No, I don't think there was any way around it. Alex was an alcoholic filled with rage. He had to have some outlet for his anger, one way or another. Some people are just that way. It's difficult to walk on eggshells on the time. Sometimes they get cracked, and vengeance falls.

Like you, though, I thought Natalie's plan was brilliant!
