Silas: It seems God has plans other than you might have wanted; get used to that… He spoke to me again; He told me… you were meant to take my place.
David: Me? David Shepherd: No… no, I - I’m no king.
Silas: It’s not up to you, either.
David: But why?
Silas: I don’t know why. Because you’re good? I’ve been good. Because you’re young? I was young too; oh, I gave Him that - everything. He ever asked for. But now He turns away, loves you.
David: I don’t know that He does.
Silas: …You have His favor! I doubt I could have escaped the traps I laid for you. You never knew what you were being given; but now - now I see. How long has He been whispering in your ear?
David: He hasn’t.
Silas: No? You didn’t feel anything? Hm? Before your butterfly crown? After? Don’t lie to me!
David: I never asked for anything.
