- Anyone who's stood under the spinning rotor blades of a helicopter will know that keeping a conversation there is quite tricky. So, let's just call this and artistic liberty.

Oh, and another little revelation on this page. It's possible Shields doesn't have sanction to do do what he's doing. But I'm sure there won't be any dire consequences when it's discovered, right? I'm sure this wasn't a trap from the beginning.

- Nothing like a walk in the park to clear your mind, right Ray?

And Shields is acknowledging he is not following protocol. Cat's survival is important to him somehow...

Y'all stay here, y'hear? - I love how Shields slides back into his Southern accent.
And the "forgiveness versus permission" line is great. He'll cross that bridge, etc. etc.
Rai probably could benefit from a good, long walk. Not off a short pier, but, if there's a barber on the way...

- To be fair, the entirety of Shields' adult life and most of his youth can be filed under "things that one probably shouldn't do"

- This isn't really fair to Rai. Thinking things through isn't one of his strong points. In fact, other than choosing the best route for parkour, he doesn't seem to ever have thought anything all the way through. It puts him at a definite .... disadvantage here. :)

As far as whether Shields can do what he's doing or not, The best way to run a bluff is to convince those around you that you aren't.

Shields is convincing, whether he's bluffing or not. :)

- @hipopotamo: Shields follows no-one's protocol but his own. Could land him in trouble when former superiors find out what he's done.

- @GroovyKinda: Shields uses his new accent whenever he's within earshot of the people who think that's actually how he talks. I wanted to illustrate how adept he is at keeping his control of his various identities.

And it's funny that you should mention a barber. I am a huge movie buff, but I am also a huge fan of a good, real haircut scene. Full Metal Jacket, G.I. Jane, V for Vendetta, Les Miserables. All movies who have been lifted by fantastic haircut scenes.

I love those scenes for the change and transition they invariably represent. Not to spoil anything, but there may be more than one haircut coming up in the very near future. :)

- Yeah...not feeling too badly for Rai having to hoof it there about now. He needs to do some serious soul-searching, because when it comes down to it, if he's going to try to survive, he'd better make something worthwhile of his life. He almost made somebody else pay the ultimate price for it (and it's still not certain if she'll live), so it's about time he thinks about what he's gonna make of himself.

- @NitztheBloody: He does tend to skirt alot of lines. Good/bad. Cruel/compassionate. Legal/illegal.

- @melaredblu: He's had his self-image thrown into turmoil for the second time in a few months. For ten years, he thought he was a murderer. Then he finds out he didn't do it, only to arrive at this moment, having shot his own girlfriend, either with the thin excuse that he though she was going to do the same, or in a moment of horrific selfishness.

He's gonna have to find out what kind of man he is, and where he's going from here. And no, there's no cause to feel sorry for him. He, and only he is responsible.
