Looks like he really is considering running.
I told him the truth--that the City needs him. He already knows that the DA's office has taken, as he called it "a nosedive."
Of course, Dan is already (literally) measuring the drapes in the EADA's office, since he's pretty much next in line for that job.
There have been three great...men who I've cared about in my life. One is dead, one is one of my best friends and the other is the man I'm beginning to realize more and more that I want to spend the rest of my life with.
I always thought Neil would be there, even to spar with, forever, and he's not.
I never thought I'd be the one giving Jack McCoy advice, and I am.
After everything that's gone on in the last year, and really, in the last twenty years, I didn't want to think about lasting relationships...and now I see more and more that I have one, with Dan.
