When Kevin is ready with a gun, lying on the kitchen floor, all set to shoot the burglars who would be entering soon, this might have gone unnoticed but there’s coffee brewing in the kitchen. Not sure if the family left it hurriedly while leaving for the vacation or Kevin had been drinking it sometimes.
