But he is at least willing to let Aline tell him her story and explain why she disappeared. Will she be able to convince him that even though the rest of her kind were psychopathic, nihilistic manipulators, she's different? Or is she lying even to herself? She does have a few murders to explain, after all.
Can true love endure across so much time and chaos, or will Aline have to accept that the things she did to save the world are a bridge too far for the man she loves?
