Mohinder Suresh: [narrating] When evolution selects it's agents, it does so at a cost. Makes demands in exchange for singularity. And you may be asked to do something against your very nature. Suddenly, the change in your life that should've been wonderful comes as a betrayal. It may seem cruel, but the goal is nothing short of self-preservation. Survival.
