The stunning find the stunning.
He personally had no idea how she and his brother fell in love, but as he began to remember his brother as he had become, it made more sense.
“Look…I’d rather not start off by being rude to my…sister…in law…”
He had no idea how to talk through this.
Dead brother has a significant other, and a child.
He’s also not dead?
“So how did you meet him?”
Yakone: HEY KIDS. Meet your new step-mother.
Noatak: Can I call you mom?
Tarrlok: What happened to our real mom?
Yakone: I don’t know. I didn’t even know her name.
Yakone: I just called her “wife.”
Yakone: It was super awkward before we…
Tarrlok nearly had a heart attack, conniption, and stroke all at once.
“How is that possible?! He’s…no he…He didn’t even tell me…”
“That has to be, the most, underwhelming reaction to seeing a dead spirit, I have ever seen or heard of. I’m impressed. Former Councilman Tarrlok. You may have wanted to punch me in the face, spit at me, or kick me in the TuiLa’s.”
I am a coward, a snake, a fool.
I had to lose all I had to even begin to think of repenting for my mistakes.
I had no regrets until I lost it all.
How does that make me sympathetic?
My past was horrific, yes.
But the past DOES NOT automatically make your future.
I made my future.
Noatak made his.
Our fate was made by OUR choices.
As I keep saying, don’t mourn my death.
It is unwarranted.
I died because I died.
I wasn’t a martyr.
I wasn’t a saint.
I was a man drunk on power that sobered up soon enough to see I was in a wreck with my own brother, and the two of us weren’t going to make it.
So I ended our suffering.
