"Aww, you'll get scars but you'll [learn to cope]. Part of the fun!" Sean Diaz is told this early into Life is Strange 2: Episode 3 by a peer who's talking about literal scars from their illegal employment trimming marijuana buds. But, it's this same character who later sits everyone down by the fire and suggests they bear their emotional scars by telling the story of the worst thing that has ever happened to them.

Sean and Daniel Diaz already have plenty of scars -- physical and emotional -- and they're cuts that are far deeper than anything a pair of tiny gardening shears could manage. "Part of the fun" is a stretch, something that only the cheeriest and most optimistic glass-half-fuller would suggest. Fun or not, it's the reality of the Diaz brothers' circumstance.
