Yes, excellent!
I also noticed that as the feelings were being narrated, I found myself wondering whose feelings they were.... we were so used to being privy to Birdie's keenly aware emotional world - that I was surprised when it turned out I'd been invited into Harry's thought process....
And then I realized how brilliant this was, because here they finally came together in a full and honest way, and Harry's thought process is on display like it never was before... kind of like they merged into each other, so I wasn't sure who was who! And Issy's small interjection (even after he'd calmly left Harry to do it himself)... beautiful and done so perfectly. Now at the point where Harry's and Birdie's minds have met, we're reminded that Birdie was the one who had heard Issy's voice (even while all along Harry thought he was hearing it).

I also loved the way we were able to see the old Harry in all his glory - just off the streets of Whitechapel, right after witnessing him as his older and more mature and thoughtful self - a reminder of how far he had come, the perfect juxtaposition.

So now some questions I've been pondering:
Is Morrie some ancestor of Maurice Bauer?
And will we ever discover who Birdie was before she was Birdie? Or is that completely not relevant? She left nothing and no-one behind, so not sure if we are ever to meet anyone in future stories who was connected to her from Trishik.
And Scotty, will we end up discovering some connection between Heshy and Faiga Himmelstein?? (...as discussed upthread!)

Excellent serial! Fantastic! So we never found out who Birdie really is..oh well. But all's well that ends well. Looking forward to the next one!

I really enjoyed reading the behind-the-scenes stuff!
I still really wanna know Birdie's real name! I feel cheated.
