I thought Claire's line "the amount of time doesn't exist" was more profound that only to try to hurt Frank. It showed how Claire still loves Jamie as much as when they where together and for someone who found the love of her life in another time with a man that no more existed when she was born, time means nothing. It's the essence of Claire as character and I thought Cait still didn't get it (her tweet) It isn't about Frank but about the special and unique destiny Claire had above the others.

Love that poem, particularly that line. It is a profound and simple truth about life and humanity. Every human interaction throughout your life alters you in some way. Unconsciously, we take with us some part of every person we meet…. Be it an accent, a voice inflection, a gait, a posture, a gesture, an attitude, a sense of style, a perception, a moral, a sense of purpose, a sense of self. We find ourselves through other people. Our experiences mold who we are often without our even noticing it. You are who you are because of your past relationships.
Frank did not understand this concept. It wasn’t Claire’s fault that marriage failed. Frank put the nail in the coffin the day he dictated his conditions and stated he couldn’t “share” her with another man. Claire discovered passion and intimacy when she met Jamie. To put Jamie away was to put away her ability to reconnect with Frank. Frank fucked that marriage up all by himself.
