This was actually mine & Colin’s idea when we came to filming. It’s - it’s like back in season 2 where he poisons me and he holds me as I die. He does it very well because there’s compassion in it even though it’s very violent. Exactly! It’s like he doesn’t hate you. He does hate me. I don’t think he does. He feels sorry for me but he knows it’s his own fault, whatever, get over it
Mary mourned her husband’s death with deep and unaffected grief. She invented a device and motto for a seal, appropriate to the occasion: it was a figure of the liquorice-tree, every part of which is useless except the root, which, of course, lies beneath the surface of the earth. Underneath was the inscription, in Latin, Dulce meum terra tegit, which translates into “The earth covers my sweet one” or “The earth hides my treasure”.
