Also, he wasn't a moron. He made up a communication system for the bandits that could have easily been deduced as the kids' scribbles.
He WAS cowardly in the face of imminent danger.
Speculation of Carley knowing is grabbing at straws. No sense in hypotheticals either.
When the Bandits broke in, she obviously wasnt on the balcony as she was before, because she was held at gun point on the ground. If the bandits yelled for her to come down the others, like Lee and Lilly would have known something was up before they found out later.
He drew an X with pink chalk. He through a piece of equipment valued by the group (Flashlight) in the garbage for anyone to see. He left a Scuff of pink chalk leading out of the gate. Yes he was definitely not a moron.
People tell you who they really are when they are faced with a difficult situation. If Ben was a coward when it mattered most... I would not trust that prick with my child.
