[Referring to Glencora
She was human. She was fallible... like us all. My wife did not go away with her lover, and you did not murder Mr. Bonteen. You see, even with those whom we love, we trust the most, there's always the element of doubt.
It's very hard to bear.
It must be bourn! We doubt and we doubt it, Finn, but it must be bourn, and the world must be faced... with dignity, and you, sir, you must show yourself - and soon - as the man you are.
