The contrast between Biff and Bernard, the standard for success, is staggering. Where Bernard is the prosperous son Willy wishes he had, Biff is the kleptomaniac failure of a son he actually has. Up until the end of the play, Biff does his best to follow Willy’s belief that popularity is the key to success, and it gets Biff exactly nowhere.

Aiden must rely on his close childhood friend Bailey to try to remind him of who he his, and confirm basic information about his life to the best of her ability, (perhaps Aiden is estranged from his parents in this case). Bailey knows Aiden exceptionally well, she helps him to re-learn everything from where he lives, to what his hobbies are and what he 's interested in on a regular basis until his memories begin to come back to him.

This sense of trust was based off of the choices his father made, and his own, thus allowing decisions to be made using the knowledge learned, and a personal opinion, to make the best decision possible.
