I actually cried big fat tears in one scene.
No matter how much softer Eve has gotten, she sticks out like a sore thumb in her inability to be soft with Nixie. She shows her compassion in different ways, and we kmow, as does Nixie, that she is deeply touched and affected. I think Roarke was able to relate to her better simply because a) she's a living breathing female, and b) because he'd had some experience with Marlena and Jenny back in Ireland.
Loved that Eve and Summerset seemed to come to a mutual respect albeit grudgingly given on both sides.
Best LoL moment: "She slid a glance toward him as she uncoded the seal. 'You really do want sex.'
'I'm still breathing, so that would be yes.'"
