“We are all love’s fools.”
It’s a terrible cliche, but it only became a cliche because it’s true. We do so very much because of love. Even the things we do out of hate are because of love, for hate cannot exist where love has not yet been.
Take Earle, for example. His love turned to passion turned to obsession turned to hate turn to psychosis turned to him wearing a horse suit (best “disguise” so far, y’all – a horse suit). We find out here just exactly what the Black Lodge is and why Earle wants it: it’s a place where spirits make “evil for the sake of evil.” And that’s why Earle wants to find it. He wants the power of pure evil.
It’s all a little “mwahahahaha!” for my taste.
