This is not the first time that Frank shot Cricket, ot at least not the first time Frank was responsible for Cricket getting shot. And there was the Trashman incident that scarred Cricket for life. But at least Cricket’s head wasn’t blown off.

And the more I think about it, the more it makes sense that Frank is responsible for much of the physical mutilation that Cricket endures. After all, Frank purposely chose to lead a life of squalor and degeneracy, he looked at his old life and thought, No more. Maybe he is the means by which Cricket can accept his own debasement, to reach a scarred physical form to help him embrace his scarred soul? It’s just a thought.
