Since your mom is a psychotherapist and your father's a professor of psychiatry, can you psychoanalyze Logan a little bit?
Barnes: Well, it's interesting, because I think as we see about the nature of people's core drives, Delos seems like an unloving father. But I think he's attempting a tough love, pushing Logan in the swimming pool like his father pushed him in the swimming pool. In the end, he really does love him. He really does care. But he's incapable of showing it. And Logan, all he wants is for his father to be proud of him. All he wants is his father to show him that he cares somehow.
I only realized this watching the finale last night, but if you look at the second version of Delos in the simulation, just before they come into the Forge, you see him wearing a hat -- and it's very similar to the one Logan chose when he went to the park. It just shows you how similar they are as creatures, and obviously they've been raised by similar fathers. I think Logan is just a bit more sensitive in the end, and I think the way he acts in the park is an escape, and a front. The way William acts in the park is more true to his core, where Logan is actually compensating for a depression, a deep, deep unhappiness, and feeling very alone.
