On a Saturday morning, Olivia goes to a restaurant for breakfast and invites Nina to meet her there. Olivia explains that she’s in love with Peter despite the fact that everyone, including Peter, keeps telling her that she can’t be. Nina reminds her of Walter’s theory that, due to the cortexiphan treatments, Olivia is responding to Peter’s memories. However, her adoptive daughter point out that she’s experiencing things that Peter never experienced or knew about. Nina reluctantly agrees to do what she can and Olivia, happy, says that they should meet for breakfast more often. Nina tells her that they meet every Saturday and realize that Olivia is losing her own memories to her new persona. Realizing what is happening to her, Olivia agrees to see Walter...Read the full recap
Nina: Now as for your feelings about Peter, all wounds heal over time.
Olivia: Yeah. I just wish the time would move a little quicker.
Nina: Well, that’s a coincidence, because we just filed a patent on that last week.
Astrid: Walter, what is that? It is putrid.
Walter: Mortius bestia—roadkill. Specifically, an aromatic excretion from the castor sacs of the North American beaver. Used primarily for marking and mating. I went beaver hunting in Eastern Canada in the 70’s. Of course, in those days, “beaver” meant something else entirely.
Astrid: Uh, Walter wants to know which of you has fearless nasal passages?
Olivia: Do you know how much pain you caused?
Anson Carr: I don’t want you to think that I did it for me. I mean, not just for me. We’re not meant to be alone. It’s every human being’s right to know love. And had I succeeded... had I found the right chemicals--just the right... balance, I could have given the world... what you have.
Olivia: What do I have?
Anson Carr: Love. I can smell that you’re in love.
Olivia: I met a woman today. She'd just lost her husband, and as she was talking about him and her marriage, as much as she wanted to be, she--she wasn't in love. As I was listening to her, I realized what she was saying. She had let go of the possibility of love, of finding love, and I could see myself in her and I didn't like who I was. All of these memories and feelings I'm experiencing, they are from a better version of me. I've decided to let things run their course.
