Growing up, my father said the ocean was a great escape. As time passed, I also learned that its great expanse holds greater secrets and the ability to hold mine. And that like love, it is at its heart fluid, powerful, and sometimes violent. But in its harshest reality, the ocean is a barrier separating you from those you love.
Emily: Look, I'm...I know I'm not very good at expressing myself. but the thing is, you're two of the most important people in my life.

Love built on lies is an arduous endeavor, for wherever passion and treachery meet, dissolution begins. Stiil, we fight to hold our ground in the emptiness ignoring the fact that every relationship, even the ones we cherish, inevitably dies.

It's hard for me to share memories from my past, Daniel. It's hard for me to trust. You know, people think that because I lost my family I never knew what real love was. But I did and it was ripped away from me and I still feel that pain like it was yesterday. That's why I push people away.
[to Aiden] You came back here to help me and I've made you feel used. But the truth is you mean so much more to me than that. You're everything to me.
Nolan: The more things you try to control, the more chance for error.
Emily: I didn't come here for platitudes.

Emily: I'll handle this.
Jack: And how are you going to do that, Emily? You can't even trust the people you have on your side.
