Kevin should thank his niece Tess for potentially saving his life

The end of Episode 10 has Kevin riding on a dangerous spiral. Driving recklessly, within seconds of a complete disaster, a guardian angel by the name of Tess, popped from the backseat of his car. His niece being in the car with him stopped that reckless driving display.

That might be his only chance to seek redemption.
