End of the Lie is complete. So what did it all mean?

Although he can't physically say it, Ahab has been watching him and now knows something of the truth. Zygiella put Ahab into a comatose-like state from her venom, but as the spider demishaman, she would have survived. Black Hatter, however, thought all three were dead. In his less sentient state before a full moon, Black Hatter thought to make her into a shadow like himself, but after talking to the Shadowmind, he thought better of it and realized how greedy he had been. To say nothing, he liked Ahab for being herself, not an ideal of his own.

However, carrying Ahab around as he did had infected her with his intense darkness. He realized she wasn't dead prior when she didn't turn as quickly as the others did. Rather, he accidentally killed her with his deathly spirit. Realizing his terrible mistake after laying her down on a stone slab, he took the remainder of his own original spirit as well as the other Shadows he had made and planted them within Ahab's heart in hopes of reviving her and stabilizing the shadow infection.

The point being, it's not relevant how or what happened, only that he never intended to ever intentionally harm her and had always been quietly in love with the girl, even going to the point of making sure Marcus didn't kill himself. Ahab must interpret this on her own. Alas, she cannot hear what he has been thinking in the mask memory, only feel the depth of his ongoing emotion.

For Black Hatter, it's a start. It's hard to speak the truth when the truth is hidden in shadow and equally silent.

For Ahab, there's probably no one who's cared for her more since Marcus and Celia.
