Gerbert: What I will enjoy is bringing an end to the de Clermonts and their cloistering sense of superiority. Philippe has been dead for decades, and yet his diseased-riddled family still wears him like a shield against their hypocricy. Baldwin has capitulated, the family's authority is compromised, so forgive my jubilent mood, but it has taken centuries to position my pieces on the board.
Gerbert: Ever since I met Benjamin Fuchs. Philippe thought Matthew killed him, but it actually weaponized him. Imagine the sheer poetry of Benjamin being the last thing Philippe saw before he lost his mind. Never let it be said I didn't capitalize on opportunities as they represented themselves. You've played your part well, Domenico. I couldn't have done it without you.
