in The November Man when Devereaux meets with Hanley to tell him where he (or Mason who Hanley sends) can find Filipova in exchange for his daughter's safety, Hanley says
You know what we used to call you, Peter? The November Man. 'Cause after you passed through, nothing lived. You are one bleak motherfucker, my friend.
Now i get the reason for the nickname beyond being just a title drop because almost everyone Devereaux did encounter did end up dying, but what i don't get is why November? December would make more sense since after December passes though that's the end of the year and some depictions of the new year shows the year just passed as an old man
and this you could consider the year just pass "dying" after December.
So how is it that November is used in this context of everyone passing it dying? i see no connection between November or it's number 11 and death
