^^^ One of the big things I love about this show is that they don't seem to embrace cliche's for the sake of a quick wrap-up or sloppy storytelling. Other examples elude me at present, but I've always been impressed at the writing, which has only gotten better.
Poor Nick. He just can't catch a break with his woman. Early on, I had hoped that she might have been the descendant of an ancient Reaper clan or one of the royal families, but now I'm starting to think she's generally kind of pointless to the overall plot and provides nothing more than a source of continuous angst for the main character. I dunno...maybe they can write her out of this soon with her lack of memory.
