Mayor Tom Kane: She didn't die. Chicago PD found her. Did she know what the files were? The ones you leaked to Miller?
Ezra Stone: No.
Mayor Tom Kane: Why did you do it?
Ezra Stone: Because it was no longer tenable. I could no longer abide by the ideas keeping you, keeping us, here in this position.
Mayor Tom Kane: Why?
Ezra Stone: Because it became clear that you were no longer ruling for the good of the city. I've done, we have done, too many terrible things in the course of running matters but I've always known why. It was always in the end because it mattered that we ran the city. Because we were best equipped to provide that which was good for its people. And if elements got in our way, elements that needed to be torn down, I could justify even the most ruthless of measures in how we dealt with them because I knew we were preserving what was good for the city by preserving this. If I could justify the end to myself, my conscience, I could pursue it by any means.
Mayor Tom Kane: What changed?
Ezra Stone: You. You got sick. You're judgements wavering, your decisions no longer justifiable. You began to act out of a sense of pure personal preservation. Stay in place at any cost. I could no longer see the end justifying our means because the only end that matters to you now is you. Your personal survival. I can't abide by that. I can't do what I need to do for you to stay where you are.
Mayor Tom Kane: When did you decide this?
Ezra Stone: Your handling of Cullen. Your denial of his quest for another term was a bad decision. Was personal, emotional, disproportionate.
