I can absolutely "see" Michael playing that last scene!

I love this trilogy! Amazing job showing how repressed memories can come back and bite you. The team is at a loss about what to do, but they stick it out with Ezra. I love Maude's reaction. Always thought people underestimated her love for Ezra. I think Vin should have aimed below the waist, to where it would really affect Parks.

I really enjoyed all of this 3 part story. You really nailed the whole abuser tactic of telling their victim that they are nothing, so no one will care or believe them if they tell anyone what they are doing. I also loved that Maude did come through in the end. Thanks for sharing.

Powerful story. Exceptional insight into the psyche of a victim of child abuse. Super team dynamics. A

Grin.. Maude did it for her son, good work, and glad that the guys came for him.

After all, promise is a promise.

Thank you for writing it, and hope to read more soon.

Keep writing!

Wow, action packed finale! Maude may not be willing to discuss what happened but she will do everything that she can to get even. Love that she made sure that someone who cares about Ezra would be there for him and then destroyed Dave in one day. Great handling of the problem. Dave just showed his true colors and took it out on Ezra. The description of how Dave was tormented and torturing Ezra was so emotionally powerful and Ezra really got whumped. Very nice that the Feds were on the case and let the team know there was a huge problem. Terrific end for Dave; he didn't suffer enough. I think that once they have time to think about it; the team will figure out what happened. Very wonderful Ezra and team fic; love the interaction between Ezra and Chris especially. Thank you so much for posting this and I hope to see more Mag 7 from you!

Ezra is working thru a lot of feelings and having to go against all that Maude taught him about control; nice point by Chris that he thinks this is a weakness. Having the team there for him and being supportive is a huge help; someone is on Ezra's side for a change. Great that Chris told them that Ezra has chosen to not kill himself; they needed to hear that. Of course Maude isnt't going to let Ezra be away from her; she is concerned about him and would get Dave to drive. The confrontation is so nice; Dave is finding out that old secrets have a way of coming out. Buck is showing admirable restrait. Looking forward to the next part!

Poor hurting, angry Ezra! Terrific job showing Ezra's freak out and reaction to having Parks show up. So much repressed emotion pouring out in such a short period of time. Ezra has been holding that back so much and it's all hitting him so hard all at once. The team is there for him and trying to figure out just what to do. Their anger and frustration was so strong, especially Buck. Love the scene at the medicine cabinet; Ezra has realized just how much the team means to him and he's not ready to leave them just yet. Very powerful chapter!

Terrific to see the third part of the series! You did a wonderful job setting everything up as normal only to have all sorts of surprises start. Maude's visit out of the blue was a bit startling but the worst surprise was to come. Very nice job drawing out the arrival and then the reveal of just who Dave Parks is. Nice way to show Ezra's reaction and just how much of a shock this is. Then the team is starting to rally and come to Ezra's aid. Looking forward to the next part!

Great story as always. You did a great job with such a hurtful subject. Thanks for sharing your stories!

Good to see another chapter from you, and sorry for the late reply.

It seemed Parker understatement about Chris in the end of the chapter.

Hope that Maude will see the reason about her son and Parker before hell breaks lose.

Keep up the great work that you are doing with your fic and update asap.
