I actually think I've covered this one, in either quote #55 or 48.
I does tell you how much power Charles has over his business partners though; they're totally cowed by that command. I think this just raises Tyler's adrenalin even more.

A strong scene, very dramatic, this is the specific moment when Tyler confronts his father, he puts out all your anger and despair and Charles reacts with more anger and they come pretty close to a physical fight. Tyler is so clear to me but Charles is still a mistery. I can`t perceive the real extension of his suffering, I can`t really imagine how he was before the tragedy with Michael and how will be his relationship with Caroline, in a long term, without Tyler and Michael.

I noticed how the audience often felt very uneasy with Charles's demonstration of power: some laughed but you could tell it wasn't a wholehearted laughter, something was off and people instinctively felt it. I had the impression that Charles was trying - unconsciously or not - to intimidate Tyler by forcing his business partners to stay when they all really wanted to leave, as if he was trying to tell Tyler that what he could do with them, to them, he could also do to him. I don't think we get Tyler's response to this display of power though, he never seems to even acknowledge the presence of anyone but his own father, as if all these people were not even there. It's only him and Charles and nothing exists or counts outside of their confrontation. A very interesting scene...
