This is about as pissed off as we’ve ever seen Lance. (See the slight tightening of the brows? No? Get a microscope, maybe?) From his point of view, he did right by Pickering and Eskimo and everybody; he didn’t try to charm Lissa. Of course, Eskimo has no way of knowing that. Lance’s tragedy is that although he wants Eskimo to believe him a good guy, he can’t resist, when asked point-blank if he’s being a bastard, saying yes.
