Brace: Do you know she took you down to the river to drown you? She waded in, held you under until the bubbles stopped. She was deranged, James. That's why your father had her committed to Bedlam, to protect you. To save your life, son. Delaney: Be very, very careful now. Brace: She wanted you dead, James.
