Dirk is such in a different place–he’s having an existential crisis about who he is. Like…his whole thing of ‘everything is connected’ and the way you’re meant to be, and all of that stuff, is great in theory. And he did, you know, they solved a mystery in season 1, but all of his friends and anybody he cares about is dying and in trouble. So, I think Dirk is having such a crisis about using the abilities he has.
