Lightfoot summarizes his case well. As we’ve already seen, Theo has considered this from a few directions already, and it’s part of his reason for sending Cora back home. The late-80s TV series Beauty and the Beast included an amazing second-season episode in which the lion-man Vincent (Ron Perlman) tells his beloved Catherine (Linda Hamilton) that “we are something that has never been; we must go carefully.” Since I’m a romantic, I won’t do to our housemates what George R. R. Martin did to grind the show to a gritty pulp in its foreshortened third season. Two more strips to go in this story arc!
