Dad: You can't make things like that up, son. Killing people is wrong, destroying demons is good. Don't worry, God will send you your own list when you're older.
Matthew McConaughey (Adam) pretended to be the other brother Fenton, who is the real serial killer, and kills the FBI agent because he's next on the list (he killed his mom). Adam and Fenton's father (Bill Paxton) is NOT crazy... they really ARE on a holy assignment. Adam killed Fenton once he was on his list. Adam's visit to the FBI headquarters is erased from the memory of those who saw him go into the HQ and the security camera tape. The FBI follows the trail of evidence and thinks that Fenton is the killer. They go to Adam's town, don't remember that he visited the headquarters and we see that Adam is the town sheriff and his wife is pregnant.
Question: Little Adam is looking in a grass-filled jar at the beginning of the movie which has a label on it that says "Curtis". At the very end of the movie, grown up Adam (as a sheriff) has a man working for him whose name is Curtis. What is the connection here? There is obviously one.
