The idea of all our characters confronting their images and the reflections of themselves, in a moment in an episode of the sideways, was a visual metaphor. It’s like just on the other side our life, there’s another life. You see what you wish for or are scared of.
“Dear Mr. Sawyer, you don’t know who I am but I know who you are and I know what you done. You had sex with my mother and then you stole my dad’s money all away. So he got angry and he killed my mother and then he killed himself, too. All I know is your name. But one of these days I’m going to find you and I’m going to give you this letter so you’ll remember what you done to me. You killed my parents, Mr. Sawyer.”
