The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) (part 7 of 14)
We leave Dad in his office with an absolutely perfect “kicked Spaniel” look on his face, and cut to (presumably) outside the next day. Snow is falling thickly, and it’s windy. Up in Will’s attic, he notices a rattling window and climbs up to deal with it, only to fall down off the ladder and hurt his ankle. Ouch.
The local doctor comes to pay a house visit. Inside, Will is arguing with his “mom” about how he doesn’t need to go to a hospital (which he doesn’t. It’s a sprained ankle. Stop being such a drama queen, “mom.” If you were my mother, you’d be telling me to stop whining and walk it off).
Will breaks off from the argument to rummage in the (ridiculously expensive-looking) fridge, only to stop dead when he hears the doctor’s voice behind him. Boy, that accent sounds familiar…
