And her greatest sin was the means by which she arrived here in the first place: she destroyed Winnifred Burkle's body and soul in order to use it as her own vessel to exist. Now witness Illyria as she tries to find a personal touchstone by which she can at least understand the human‹she returns to the remnants of Fred's old life to try and make herself feel guilty over having destroyed Fred's very existence.
