Some cheesy yet amazing drama between Holo and Lawrence, considering that Holo is very special to Lawrence. So another risky plan to pay off his dept... smuggling gold. Using Nora as a nice shepherd and putting gold on the sheep, I think the plan will work... well probably.
Holo's reaction was unexpected, which I find ironic since it's obvious that Lawrence is in a tight spot. Totally blaming herself was a bit much, but overall it was nice to see a forgiving response that cut Lawrence some slack; I mean, really, everyone needs second chances.
Why is it so uncommon to find someone in a story not taking a situation and making it more dramatic? It's quite refreshing.
In any case, I still kinda feel bad for Nora; I'm a bit surprised that she agreed. I wish we knew more about her.
Nice development, in any case.

The church has heavy import duties on the gold, making it unprofitable to import it normally. By getting it in duty-free (and therefore illegally), one could make an enormous profit due to lack of supply.
