You want a war?


Do you want a war EP11S02.png

Amanita — Here’s the thing…: we all wake up and we have to tick the same Terms and Conditions box.

Everyday stuff will happen to you. Some of it will be good. Some of it will be bad.

Choice is less about what happens than it is about how we deal with it.

[she gets out of bed]

I’ve been thinking a lot about all the things that have happened to us over this past year. I won’t lie: sometimes it’s terrifying. And sometimes it’s incredibly exciting.

It’s been maddening… enlightening… confusing… and always unpredictable.

However, I don’t think there’s been a single day when I didn’t hear that same voice in my head telling me: ‘Whatever you do… do not let her go’.

[she gets a small box from a cupboard; she goes up the bed, opens it, and inside there’s an engagement ring]

Nomi Marks… Will you marry me?

[Nomi gasps]

Nomi — Oh, my God… Oh, my God, I don’t believe this.

Amanita — What?!

[Nomi gets a box under the bed, and takes from it a smaller box; she opens it, and there’s also an engagement ring in it]

Nomi — Amanita Caplan, will you marry me?

[they laugh]

Amanita — Abso-fucking-lutely!… You?!

Nomi — Every day of my life.

Step in the Arena


Reva – What did that question spark on you?

Luke – I know… What is like to be on this side… and… from where I’m at… That idea seems like bullshit.

Reva – You innocent?

Luke – Doesn’t matter…

Reva – You are!…

Luke – I’m guilty of a lot of things people will never know about. I guess it’s karma’s way of reminding me… that she can be a bitch. 


(Reva – He’s in prison… but he’s not a prisoner.)

Reva – So why do you come here?

Luke – Because you provide hope.


Luke – (…) Sometimes… survival costs.”
