Quote: “I’ve killed again. I’m officially a serial killer of sorts. I don’t like what I’m becoming, and I don’t know what to do about it.” This is one of my favorite Nate quotes because this is where he realizes he’s starting to change. His awareness of who he is, is what makes him stronger. It also pushes him into realizing what he wants with his future.
- In the original Altered to Kill, Nate never killed until he was forced by the Human Preservation Agency. He was originally taken by the HPA for drawing attention to himself in a senior prank gone wrong.
- He once made Evie the best grilled cheese she’s ever tasted, but the scene was cut.
- Nate’s name was shortened to have the same amount of letters as Mira’s name.
