Klaus: I want your confession.
Caroline: My confession? I didn’t do anything. Confession about what?
klaus: Me. As soon as we’re done here, I’m gonna walk away, and I’m never coming back. You’ll never again have to look me in the eye and cover our connection with hostility and revulsion. You’ll never have to loathe the darkest parts of yourself that care for me in spite of all i’ve done. I will be gone, and you will be free. I just… want you to be honest with me.
Caroline: I’m in college. I’m building a life for myself. I have plans and a future and things that I want, and none of those things involve you, ok. none of them.
Klaus: I see.
Caroline: No, you don’t, because… yes, I cover our connection with hostility because yes, I hate myself for the truth, so if you promise to walk away like you said and never come back, then yes, I will be honest with you. I will be honest with you about what I want.
Klaus: I will walk away, and I’ll never come back, I promise.
Caroline: Good.
