The tickets were all sold out, but the Starz people let me and a few other latecomers in anyway, and got a bench for us to sit on.

I personally think it's a beautiful poetic pattern that got set up and fulfilled there on Day Four. But even if you hate that pattern, I don't see how people can say that Jack never believed he and Ianto were a couple.
