All right, I'm making this fast and dirty. Whoever is around my shadow, you should be able to kill it in just a second.

[ There's a long silence here, as if Tex is having second thoughts about doing this. ]

Look, this is just for the benefit of anyone in my shadow's vicinity, because it's fucking powerful and violent and I don't want it killing anyone.

[ Another pause, a shorter one, and her voice returns, quieter and full of grief. ]

I killed Connie. I didn't know until later what she was doing and I killed her. She left a file full of evidence behind and I found out later that was probably the worst thing I could have done.

I've...never...forgiven myself for that.

[ There's a lot more Tex could confess, but it just takes one, as far as she knows. Hopefully it's good enough. ]

[ York's chosen to handle his sacrifice more privately, and listens to Tex's confession with a heavy heart. Connie. ]

We tried. To make good with her intel.

I would have helped you. It just would've hurt more.

[ He sighs, the sound muffled by his helmet. ]

Maybe I should have explained to Carolina instead of just asking her to trust me, and then we might have succeeded. We can drive ourselves crazy with maybes... it went down how it did.

[ He's being a bit of a hypocrite telling her this, considering how guilty he feels over Wash lately. But it's the right think to say.

His next response takes a moment, and when it comes it's with quiet honesty. ]


Not really. It's attacked everyone I care about, and the only way to kill it.... I'm going to have to talk to Carolina. Say some things I don't think she's ready to hear.

It's nothing bad, I guess, just... hard. We're just not at that point yet.

[ There's no other option. ]

Yeah, this won't be public. But I'll tell you when the damn thing is dead.

[ He hesitates, speaks cautiously. ] Is it not good enough if you tell him later?

Can't blame me for stalling. Good luck, Tex. Kill yourself dead.

Glad to know she trusted someone.

Hello Tex.

You killed her. Of course she made a mistake. She must have thought all of us were so fucking stupid.

Why the hell did she even trust you?

[Why Tex when he had been right there? Except he knows why and he hates himself for it. And he knows why Connie had trusted Texas too. He doesn't have to like it though.]

[He swallows. He knows too much. He doesn't like that Tex knows what's in his head.]

She could have come to me.

You're right, it doesn't matter. Everyone else is dead. What's one more?

No. It's far too late for that now.

Fine. That's what you're good at after all.

That isn't what I was asking.

gentle apologies for this tag

Fine

[It's amazing that she wants to tell the entire network this this way -- but not him. If she "didn't want to tell him this way" she should probably have told him first, he thinks.]
