Your company has been involved in, if not directly responsible for, some of the most horrific things that I have ever seen, to say nothing of the fact that you just yanked me into a parallel universe to warn me about an inter-dimensional war that I believe you are responsible for starting. So what I want is not warmth, or tea. It’s the truth.

“Olivia, I think I’m starting to understand why the process didn’t work. You are different. You’re not that frightened child anymore. I thought all we needed was a heightened emotional response from you, but I was wrong. We needed a specific one. Fear. And you’re not capable of that anymore. Well, not like she was. What we did to you – you found a way to protect yourself. You channelled your fear into anger, which is why you are so good at your job. But if you want to save those people, you have to find your way back to that scared little girl.”
