I wanted to keep everyone on that fountain-set for a while longer, but the story has dragged them elsewhere. So I had to build a new set.
To me, today's lines are delivered with a wistful feel, even if the subject matter is rather creepy.
The subtle friendship between these two characters surprised me - I had planned for them to be more antagonistic. But it does make sense - they've been working closely together for years now, raising a family of sorts. Sure, it's a psychotic family with a basis of lies and kidnapping, but every family has a few skeletons in the closet.
