Poppy tells Tora never to call her the B word again, and Tora apologizes. He tells her that backhanded jabs mess with his head, and we discuss possible reasons why. Poppy contemplates her jab and how much it reminds her of Julri's behavior.
She explains that she has a hard time being direct with someone when she is upset at them, and Tora figures out why. He starts reading her note, but Poppy tries to grab it away from him. Tora stars telling her not to run after busses again but shuts his mouth when he realizes he isn't supposed to know that.
He apologizes for what he did at the cafe and decides to finally tell her about his upbringing. He tells her it was rough on the streets, and that Poppy should NOT cut him slack, and do what she needs to do to feel safe.
She comforts him with a touch, and Tora pokes fun of the term Quincy always calls him: Neanderthal. He tells Poppy that yes, he is a tough guy, and then we have the best fourth wall break ever. Sorry, Tora, we did think you were a life coach.
Their conciliation turns flirtatious, but Tora turns away, wanting her to know who he really is before they become a c... a c.... At which point, our dear darling but totally poorly timed boy does some home invasion of his own: Gyu, who couldn't catch the intruder.
