Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

You know, I really thought it was going to be different this time. I really thought you were going to do the right thing. I really thought that finally, there would be some trust here.

I don't get it. I just think things would have worked a lot better if there had been some honesty. I can understand everyone else being kept out of the loop, and in fact, being told there was an entirely different loop, or perhaps even better, not even being told there was a loop. But us? Come on. We're an integral part of it. What the hell are we going to do — tell the whole world? Like anyone else gives a damn anyway. I think we've got a little more sense than that.

But we figured it out anyway, just like before, so I'm not sure what was accomplished by the whole smoke and mirrors act. Did you really think we wouldn't? Wasn't it completely obvious anyway, this great open secret?

I already have an idea how this is going to finish. No one wins, no one loses. As is so often the case, it's going to come down to money, and how much it takes to sweep it all under the rug and make it disappear forever. Then this ongoing circus can finally fold up its tents and move on to the next town, and everyone's lives can go back to normal.

Except mine. For I know the truth, I know you can't be trusted, and I know to watch my back.
