  • Little did we know that Ellie would be such a vital character..

    This episode was truly one which made you feel the closeness and sorrow shared not only by Catherine and Vincent, but also by the entire tunnel community when Ellie died from the plague. What was most touching of all is when Catherine sang "sleep my little one" and later told Vincent that her mother used to sing her that song. It was heartwarming to see those who dwell in the tunnels come together to defeat this illness and only brought on because they helped a defector who lost his love when she married someone else. As Vincent later told Catherine on her balcony, "one either moves toward love or away from it; there is no other direction"
