Jeremiah Pontelli: [after hypnotism session] I believe that these are two distinct personalities, which both coexist within the same body, and yet have different sets of memories altogether. They are, for all practical purposes, two entirely separate individuals. If you'll accept, that is, that we are what we remember.
Dr. Simon Jordan: Perhaps.
[clears throat]
Dr. Simon Jordan: But, we are also preponderantly what we forget.

User Reviews

Terrible final episode
26 May 2021 | by hpcmakeupSee all my reviews

This episode feels like a horror movie that was written by a completely different writer and a bunch of weird scenes that are completely different from how all the characters have been acting the last 5 episodes. It all makes no sense! Absolutely terrible! And the hypnosis scene ruins the entire season.
