"You know why you hate what I did so much, Gemma? Because it's something you would have done. You've been my teacher, my Old Lady coach since I came back to Charming.

"I know him better than you do," Tara says, throwing down the gantlet."Oh no, clearly you don't. My son loves deep; hates deeper. It's in our genes. Betrayal is unforgivable. What you did, what you were planning to do? There's no coming back from that. All you can do now is tell him you're sorry, and go away," Gemma says."I'll never do that, not without my sons," Tara says.Gemma gives her one final message, that Tara will never raise her sons, and they'll either hear that mommy moved away, or mommy passed away.
