They stand at opposite sides of the contract signing table.

Kevin doesn’t do anything and Sami says that Kevin should just act like the last twelve years never existed.

They started in Montreal and took it all over the world, fighting with and against each other. He should have seen it coming, but he didn’t. Everything they did, whether as friends or enemies was done to end up here.
