“She tends to experience a quiet seething anger for the victims, as she does here, which ties with what happened to her as a child and is a learned coping mechanism. When her emotions become too great she expresses herself through anger to hide other, more vulnerable, emotions. Ultimately, we and Olivia come to appreciate that her emotions are dangerous, and that she learned early on to repress them. At this early stage she does not realize why she expresses herself in this way or that she’s even doing it at all.
Despite this, Olivia tends to be very controlled emotionally.”

“Yeah, of course it’s the way that you expected it to end…like, ‘happily ever after.’ That’s what’s beautiful, is that these people don’t live in the real world, they live in your minds and they live in your imagination and the reason you watch shows is so that you can hope. And at the end of the day, I think that’s what Joel was trying to say, is that there is hope.”
