Isabelle: You're not sending our little brother out into the field! Alec: You know better than anyone how good Max is. His simulation scores are off the charts. Isabelle: That's a simulation; I'm talking about the real world. Alec: Max has had his Rune ceremony. It's standard to get orders after that, just like we did when we were his age. Isabelle: it was different back then. We weren't fighting Valentine. Alec: Izzy... Isabelle: You weren't there that night with Kayleigh. He came this close to dying. Alec: Max is a soldier. It's time we start treating him like one.
Jonathan: My sister is different. Valentine: Yes, she is. If you had the chance to meet Clarissa, spend some time with her. Jonathan: So, you're acting like I'll never see her again? Valentine: Of course you will. You have my word. One day we will all be together as a family. But right now...right now I need you to trust me. Jonathan: Trust you? It goes both ways. [Pulls out Valentine's dagger] Jonathan: I found this under your pillow. Valentine: Force of habit...that's all. Jonathan: Is it? Valentine: I'm a wanted man, I must always be prepared. Soon I will no longer be regarded as the enemy; I will be seen as a hero. So will you. Isn't that what you want? Jonathan: Yes. Yes, it is. Valentine: Good. We're gonna achieve great things, Jonathan.
