And sometimes, if we look carefully, we see our own reflection. Continue reading Seeing Through a Glass, Darkly

I’ve gone back through and decided to narrow it down to 5 moments (really you could say any time they shared air in episode 12, and that would be accurate) plus one that was completely unconsciously done before he started to grasp the situation he found himself in, and I’ll explain the rationale behind each.
