Emily: Nick, in the hotel room, I didn't know if I was going to see you again, and I just wanted to relive it.
Nick: I did to.

Detective Gibbs: Can't say I blame her.
Agent Crown: Then she digs into his files, finds out about the switch that leads her to Emily.
Detective Gibbs: She dedicates her life to revenge, reinvents herself as Laurie Colson, and in Harlow she finds the perfect partner. He hated Emily. A match made in heaven.

Six years breaking you down, taking everything away from you, recreating you and setting you free to watch your life crumble around you once and for all. It all went beautifully. Nothing would have been more satisfying than to see you kill your husband's new wife and show the world the truth about Emily Byrne. Sadly I watched as you did nothing. Shen would have been so surprised to learn that all of his work could have been undone by a mother's love for her child.

Laurie/Logan

You see, Shen believed children who survived early trauma like yours and weren't crushed by it could be forged into killer soldiers. Clinical, dispassionate, weapons that could be turned on and off like a switch.

This is your second chance. Life doesn't give us second chances too often. Make the most of it.

Nick

Jack: You need to pick a side, Warren. You need to pick a side. Your daughter's or your grandson's.
Warren: You were never good enough for her. She ran rings around you as an agent, she's running rings around you now, and when she's cleared her name and caught this killer she'll have made you and the whole damn bureau look like the morons you are.
