With hindsight, Cutter should have known that it wasn’t their Connor who came back through the anomaly. He looked the same, had the same creative intelligence, but something was different.
With hindsight, Cutter should have recognised the signs. He should have seen Connor’s relentless slide into single-minded, almost obsessive, research. His new ruthlessness and hunger for knowledge.
With hindsight, it reminded him of Helen.
Not that the work hadn’t borne fruit. It had given them the first Anomaly Control Device. The single greatest breakthrough since they had started.
With hindsight, Cutter tried to convince himself it was worth the cost.
