Ianto watched Jack showing off for the police, flirting and smiling the smile until they gave up, leaving the investigation to Torchwood.
“It’s all smoke and mirrors with you,” he observed, coming to stand beside his captain.
“What do you mean?”
“The Wizard of Oz hid behind a curtain to fool people into thinking he was some great and powerful being; you hide behind the coat and a flirty smile, playing the Big Damn Hero so people don’t see that you’re just like them. But I see you Jack, you don’t fool me.”
Jack looked into Ianto’s eyes.
