Emily Thorne: [opening voiceover] As Hamlet said to Ophelia, "God has given you once face, and you make yourself another." The battle between these two halves of identity... who we are and who we pretend to be... is unwinnable.
Emily Thorne: [closing voiceover] Just as there are two sides to every story, there are two sides to every person... one that we reveal to the world, and another we keep hidden inside. A duality governed by the balance of light and darkness. Within each of us is the capacity for both good and evil. But those who are able to blur the moral dividing line hold the true power.
Nolan Ross: Ah, ambiguous sexual identity. I get it. I'm about a... 3 on the Kinsey scale myself.
Emily Thorne: Tyler never showed up for dinner. I'm impressed. How'd you do it?
Nolan Ross: Well, I can't take all the credit. I took a page from the angel of revenge herself. Dug up some dirt, used it for leverage.
Emily Thorne: What's the dirt?
Nolan Ross: Suffice it to say our boy is a bit of a con man. What he doesn't know is you can't con a con.
