See, I'm only working on S1 + catching the end of the Moreau arc on TV, but I feel like Eliot is pretty OK with who he is, even right at the start? He doesn't like who he used to be, and he's worried that he might fall back into that, but he knows he's not that person now.

Whereas I think a lot of the time he looks at Sophie and thinks, she may be the one who tried to go legit, but she doesn't even have the first idea how to stop lying to everyone including herself. And I think he's not entire wrong about that, but she's also a lot more self-aware than he sees, and he needs to figure that out, and also learn some things about women.

And there's this weird tension where in a lot of ways Sophie and Nate are mom and dad and Eliot's fine with that dynamic, but when it's just him and Sophie you get the impression Sophie actually wants to look to Eliot for approval.

Anyway. Now I'm just trying to figure Sophie out again....
