Oh Leo, you do realize you’re necessary as a plot device, don’t you? Regardless of your protests, you carry Glen Baskerville’s soul, and as you know, the Baskervilles are of great important to the plot. While I understand that you’d rather die than live without Elliot, I can’t have you die until the proper moment…if at all. And besides, your suffering is aesthetically pleasing, however tragic.
I think it’s more convenient that we stick to the script, shall we, Leo?
