It's funny how fate works. I had no idea that the cage I was building all this time was a trap for me. And when I found myself here locked in, I thought this was the end. But that's not how destiny works. This is just the beginning because this where I had to be, exactly where I had to be ... with you. There you were with your books and your sunshine. So close and worlds away. I will figure out a way. A way to get to you. See you soon, neighbor.

So karma and I, we're in a fight. Some people, they get what they deserve. Some people don't. 

Joe Voiceover

You are just as broken as I am. You're just a much better liar. Jesus, you think I don't know? After all of these years, you really think I am that dumb? That I don't know what you're capable of? I have tiptoed around it my entire life, and it has eaten me alive. I love you, but you are crazy if you think you're capable of being a good mother.


Joe: You want the truth? I killed Henderson, and I don't feel guilty about it. What I am is all that stands between you and people who are worse. Now let me help you.
Ellie: You ruined my life!
Joe: I am truly sorry. Side door.
Ellie: Burn in hell.
Joe Voiceover: She should hate me, but as long as she's safe. Is this what fatherhood feels like?

Ellie: I hate you. You brought the Quinns into our lives, and you're the reason Delilah is gone. Dead. Right? She's dead?
Joe: I'm sorry, Ellie. 

Love: I understand if you can't love me anymore or don't want to.
Joe: I do want to. Real love doesn't evaporate when things get hard. I will earn back your trust. I would do whatever it takes. Nothing is more important than this.

Candace said I'd face myself. Maybe this is it. Facing you. 


Love: My whole life I've been doing what it takes when I love someone. And I love you. I love you.
Joe: I don't know what to say.
Love: Say "Love, I get it". Say "Love, we both had to learn how to survive really young." How old were you the first time?
Joe: Nine.
Love: I'm so sorry. You were just a child.
Joe: So were you.

I didn't kill Beck, but I am guilty. I'm guilty here. She's not the first. She's just the first to end up dead. No, I'm a bad person. I'm exactly where I deserve to be.

It isn't hard to convince someone you love them if you know what they want to hear.

Joe: What kind of sick mind thinks forcing a teenager into the system is doing her a favor?
Love: If you have a better idea, I'm open to that.
Joe: I'm sorry, it's very hard to think clearly in the river of crazy you're spewing.
Love: OK, get a grip. I thought you would be the last person who'd be hysterical.
Joe: Hysterical? You killed Delilah!
Love: Because you killed a fucking celebrity. You know why this is happening? Because while I was seeing you, really seeing you, you were busy gazing at a goddamn fantasy. A perfectly imperfect girl. Saw what you wanted to see, but I was always right here the whole time. It wasn't that hard. You just had to look.

Ellie is going to emerge stronger, smarter, and better off.
