They in turn were working for Comstock, who needed a blood heir for Columbia, having been rendered sterile by the twins' reality-warping experiments.
Booker later had a change of heart and chased down the Luteces as they stepped through a Tear, severing the tip of Elizabeth's finger which gave her the awareness of multiple realities. Elizabeth asserts that there has been an endless cycle of Bookers and Comstocks, and the only way to end this is to destroy the creation of Comstock; she takes Booker to the site of the baptism and drown Booker with the aid of dozens of other Elizabeths from other timelines.

Burial at Sea[ edit ] Main article: Burial at Sea "There were some Columbia ideas we kicked around, but I think we also got to the point where we felt like that was the story that we had just told.

Elementary charts the evolving relationship between a Sherlock Holmes and a female Joan Watson. The creators have said, repeatedly, that the relationship will stay platonic, and as a result the series is an incredible breath of fresh air. It could be romantic, but it's incredibly platonic and very sweet. There are no kisses, some rare hugs, and a lot of calling eachother out on Sherlock's problematic behaviors and Joan's level of deduction Both of which are improving.

When we view a relationship in only romantic or familial terms, we strip it of any extra nuances, or deny that a love can exist between friends. These extra nuances are what make someone more fleshed out. They are doing this out of love with no expectation of anything back. And, this is happening on both sides. Neither the boy nor the girl expect any sort of romantic repayment or familial devotion.
They are doing it because they have something in common and like each other in such a way all they want is this companionship.
