Thorn hits the limit of Iona’s Ceannic, and decides to just switch back to Sønska.
Thorn: Listen . . . Iona, right? We don’t have “servants” in Ceannis. Not like your “servants”. Nobody ever stops being a citizen.
Iona: A what?
Thorn: — A citizen.
If people have debts, we deal with that in other ways. And they never have debt from a medicine cost too much. I think the Ceanska way is better than the Sønska.
Ragnild: Hey, do you really think our way is so bad? Or do you just want special treatment for Leif, since he’s your boyfriend?
Thorn (thinking): . . . to be fair, her callout isn’t totally off base.
I want Leif to have the special-est treatment in the world.
