Jean talking about it being the beginning of the end, don’t let that be foreshadowing.

In last night’s episode (December 19 2019), Kush went to talk to Jean, where she was watching a farewell video of her friend Daniel, who she believes passed away.

When Kush said to her “you’re just having a down day, we all have those”, Jean replied saying: “Or maybe I’m tired. Or maybe this is how it feels, the beginning of the end.”
