Excellent episode that, once again, proves how good the writing actually is. Everytime I'm already starting to moan because I assume some cliché move will happen, the show proves me wrong. Example:
"You think you know somebody, and you think they'll never betray you.."
"You were just being a good friend. Speaks highly of you and poorly of them."
"Yeah, I guess. Look I'm sorry that I kept information from you on the case."
"I'm sorry that I went to [name] behind your back."
"Let's uh, let's make a pact, huh? No more secrets from eachother, 100 percent honesty. What do you think?"
"I think that's where we get into trouble. Sometimes you have to do the wrong thing for the right reason and I'd rather keep a secret from you than break a promise to you."
I already expected her to say yes, just like I had expected Kellogg to do something behind her back when his grandmother had been kidnapped some episodes ago instead of work with
her. But then she proved me wrong. Thank the heavens.
Not only is that great dialogue, it also refers to a scene where Kiera's husband apologizes and tells her, "I swear, I will never keep a secret from you again.", which deepens their formerly almost perfect-appearing relationship to something more complex and realistic, which overall resonates with Kiera's character: She still desperately needs to get home, but her idealistic memories slowly fade away and leave room for reality. Plus foreshadowing. (Or, since it most likely already happened to her in her past in the future, backshadowing? I'm so confused right now. *g*)
