SO MANY CONFLICTING EMOTIONS
Can we just talk about what a BRILLIANT name “The Human Factor” was for this episode? Because this entire episode was about how you have to keep your humanity, and if you take that away then you’re nothing better than a mindless drone.
But to kill a parent you have to be really far removed. Like… to murder the person who gave you life is considered one of the most heinous crimes people commit. But his confession - the only reason he did it was because he felt all those human emotions so deeply - he was so entirely human that he felt he had to do it.
Like… think about it.
Our humanity is our saving grace and our greatest downfall.
