Episode Quotes
Opening Narration
Emily: As Hamlet said to Ophelia, “God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.” The battle between these two halves of identity... who we are and who we pretend to be, is un-winnable.

Emily: Never underestimate your enemy.

Ed: We also do panic rooms.
Emily: I don't panic.

Emily: (voice over) "Just as there are two sides to every story. There are two sides to every person. One that we reveal to the world and another we keep hidden inside. A duality governed between the balance of light and darkness."

Daniel: Unpredictable moments can change your life if you’re ready for them.
