    Summary

    John remembers his rape at Paresis Hall and drowns little by little into depression. He has more and more nightmares about his past traumas and hates himself more than before. Laszlo decides to take care of him. A difficult task for someone who used to daily roast the reporter. He doesn't dislike it but being kind with John feels so wrong. Laszlo's convinced he's the cause of John's misery and will, for the second time of his life, make his best to make his friend happy. But what makes John really happy is a thing neither of them would have believed.

    Laszlo thinks John hates him.
    John thinks Laszlo hates him.
    Both are depressed idiots.

    Summary

    A bit of a twist of episode 8 beginning. Laszlo talks too much this time. He knows it for this is the first time John replies with a punch in the alienist's face. John wonders how it is possible to be in love with such a bastard like Laszlo and how can HE be in love with Laszlo. The good doctor has so much, too much power over him, it destroys John inside. To the extent of trying the unthinkable.

    Summary

    Japheth Dury’s shadow hangs heavy over New York even after his death -- in an effort to draw Laszlo out of his lingering melancholy, John drags him across the Atlantic to Paris, and right into the middle of a whole new case in the Palais Garnier. A kidnapped soprano. Murdered stagehands. A phantom in the opera house.

    Summary

    John had moved on. That was the simple truth. There was Julia and although that had failed and he had spent his time buried in alcohol and high end brothels, he still had the advantage that he had moved on. Then, he had moved on to Sara - who was also uninterested in John romantically. But he had moved on.

    Until he knew he hadn't.

    Because Laszlo started seeing Mary.

    Summary

    “It isn’t absurd,” John protests. “You can’t be followed if he can’t recognize you.”

    Laszlo’s dark eyes sparkle up at him, amused, indulgent. “And just how shall I disguise myself? Rub ashes into my face and dress as a vagabond?”

    “Not at all.” John thinks now in earnest, considering with a keen artist’s eye the contours of Laszlo’s soft features -- the answer is so simple. “A shave would suffice.”

    Summary

    John tugs off a glove, touches his knuckles to Laszlo’s cheek. Laszlo tries to draw away, but it’s too late.

    “You’re frozen almost solid!” It’s then he notices Laszlo’s bare hands, tucked into his lap, clenched in the blanket. “Where the devil are your gloves?”

    The absence of a reply gives John his answer.

    It's the middle of winter, and it falls upon John to prevent Laszlo succumbing to the cold like the reckless fool he is.

    Summary

    “Stop!” Is the loud word that separates the fighting cats that are Laszlo and John. A word yelped from a little boy’s mouth, a boy who’s freckled face is streaked with tears. “We ain’t gonna find nobody like this!”

    John rubs his temple. He’s right.
