But what about the scene earlier, in which the doc is wearing a white shirt in Noah's version, and a shirt of a different color in Helen's? We've seen differences like that before in versions of our characters' accounts, and that's what doesn't make too much sense.
Again, I get completely why characters would leave this out that part out of their accounts. I of course get why a given character would seem more flirtatious in one account - as Helen did in Noah's account - in contrast to how she appeared in Helen's. Along with that, we've seen Alison's clothes looking sexier - the same clothes looking more provocative - in Noah's account, in contrast to Alison's, more than once in previous episodes and seasons. All of that makes good sense in this story.
But literally different clothing? When Noah sees the white shirt, he's seeing, what? The doc is more formally a doctor in his account than in Helen's? I guess so.
At the same time, Noah's hallucinations are becoming an increasingly bigger player as this season progresses. It occurred to me that maybe even some or all of what Noah is remembering about what happened in prison happened more in his mind than to his body.
Which gets us back to who caused the wound in his neck? We don't even know for sure that the pain he's feeling in his shoulder is real - but the wound, in contrast, is seen by everyone.
So, who caused it? It would cool is the white shirt was some sort of metaphorical clue. But it's probably ... just a white shirt.
