Emily Thorne: [opening voiceover] Destiny... to believe that a life is meant for a single purpose, one must also believe in a common fate. Father to daughter, brother to sister, mother to child, blood ties can be as unyielding as they are eternal. But it is our bonds of choice that truly light the road we travel... love versus hatred, loyalty against betrayal. A person's true destiny can only be revealed at the end of his journey. And the story I have to tell is far from over.
Emily Thorne: [closing voiceover] Some say that to believe in destiny is to dismiss the role of free will. That self-determination cannot prevail in the presence of fate. When the truth is, the only part of destiny we can control is the fate we choose for another.
Satoshi Takeda: You've already failed to kill the murderer of your father. Who's to say he won't come for you again?
Emily Thorne: I'm counting on it, Takeda. He might be the only person left who knows what happened to her.
Satoshi Takeda: You would throw away your training on the unsupported assumption that your mother remains alive.
Emily Thorne: Dead or alive, I'm gonna find out what happened to her, and when I do... God help the people who kept me from her, and that includes you.
