Beth: "Yes, we have a secret."
Helen: "And you'd go to any lengths to protect it."
Beth: "Yes, but that doesn't mean we killed John."
Helen Hawkins: "My father was also killed."
Beth: "A hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Pownall led a massacre! You can't be naive enough to believe it won't happen again."
Beth: "You can sit there in judgment, but do you imagine what would happen if we were found out!? We would be victimized if not rounded up! That family, the Pownalls, they're still around."
Helen: "We are Pownalls."
Beth: "What? Our great-grandparents fled the massacre, they didn't lead it!"
Helen: "It was on the DNA test that led me to Rick."
Rick: "She never told me about that."
―Helen reveals to Beth that they're related to the Pownalls.

Ryn: "You never told me this about your family. We talk about it and you said nothing!"
Ben: "I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I should have told you."
Ryn: "Why?"
Ben: "I was afraid."
Ryn: "Afraid?"
Ben: "Of you thinking I am the same as Charles."
Ryn: "Shame."
Ben: "Yes. I am ashamed to be related to someone who could do that."
