    This is by far the best episodes of Season 1, having a lot of drama and different locations it expands on the characters persona's and finally puts William (Silas's brother in law) plan to topple the king into affect. Silas shows everyone that he is still king and does not mind getting his hands a little dirty when it comes to his Kingdom. David is scheduled to be terminated the same moment the ceremony of the handing over of Port Prosperity is complete. Jack is forced to kiss the ground Silas walks on for forgiveness. Silas is shoot during the ceremony giving Jack the Throne. David being saved by Jack's order before his execution is unaware what is going on.

    • David: No. You don't deserve to die loved. You don't deserve it, you son of a bitch! Get up! After all the wrong you've done to them--to me! I fought for you. I believed in you. We all did! You told us you were chosen to lead. Was that a lie, or did God just make a mistake?

    • Jack: I come to beg forgiveness.
      Silas: Forgiveness is a form of love and I do not love you.
      Rose: Silas.
      Jack: Yes you do.
      Silas: Kneel. Kneel.
      (Jack kneels)
      Now kiss the ground I walk on.
      Rose: Silas!
      Silas: Your mouth's been in dirtier places.
      (Jack kisses the king's feet)
      That's the second time your mother's given you life. It will be the last.

    • Jack: I come to beg forgiveness.
      Silas: Forgiveness is a form of love and I do not love you.
      Rose: Silas.
      Jack: Yes you do.
      Silas: Kneel. Kneel.
      (Jack kneels)
      Now kiss the ground I walk on.
      Rose: Silas!
      Silas: Your mouth's been in dirtier places.
      (Jack kisses the king's feet)
      That's the second time your mother's given you life. It will be the last.

    • William Cross: There's a language to civilization, and a small group of scholars who can read it. I was born fluent. General Benjamin could barely make out the glyphs. As King, he's lost his glasses--can't see that war is just a fuel of progress. Nothing gets made in peace, except art.

    • Vesper: Since I owe you double, let me give you a parting gift: your obol coin in the mouth. It is always better to be loved than feared. Some of us made the mistake the other way, and it does not go well. Die loved. You die happy.
      David: I'd rather live miserable.
      Vesper: I like you.

    • David Sheperd: I have only ever lived for peace. I lift my eyes to you and I know I'll find it.
