Summary: Jack's thoughts during a certain scene.
Jack isn’t sure if he should be proud or not.
The girl who’d never killed a spider has just taken out a military helicopter with a flame-thrower and then turned to him with the same adorable grin that had haunted far too many of his nights since he left the planet.
He remembers Davros taunting the Doctor about turning ordinary people into weapons; the guilt on the Doctor’s face.
All Jack can feel is joy that he gave Gwen the tools to stay alive. She’s beaten the Torchwood curse and that’s a miracle.
He’s got nothing to be ashamed of.
