skyways April 7, 2015 Share April 7, 2015 Quote I was less understanding about why the actress came back for Mark. It seemed she must have seen him as a way out of the road show business, but I didn't get what she was expecting or why she was disappointed when she saw the house he was providing for her. I never got why she would be expecting more from a working man in a small village, since she should have some idea what life was like in these places. And that is the main crux of the issue and why I felt this episode was disjointed. Mark and Keren weren't properly introduced and yet her commenting on the house was. In the book she's an aspiring actress with a travelling team with a knack for attracting men, and escaping what she saw was a life of uncertainty. Mark made a play for her and she played hard to get insisting that he build a house for her first before she would agree to marry him. Of course she thought the house would be livable (In the book it really wasn't) so her disappointment in her choice began that first day. Did you notice her flirting with the doctor? This will come into play big time. Quote Liked the growth in confidence for Demelza and how she was smoothly misdirecting Ross about her and Verity's visit to the shops. Being all "I couldn't choose between the colors so I'll have to go back. Hey Verity, want to do this again next week?" Now that Francis is no longer a man of means, can poor Verity go ahead and make her own choice of the captain and get out of Francis' house? One less mouth to feed, right This whole incident is very significant. Won't say anymore. Quote What I noticed in that scene was how comfortable he was in talking with Verity while he was staring at the two women (Demelza and Elizabeth). He forgot he was talking to another woman when she (IMHO jesting) suggested he might like to have them both. Her expression at his response was priceless. I think now-a-days we'd label that expression TMI! That was hilarious. Poor Verity wished she could stop her ears!! But do you know what I liked here? It reminded me of when Ross in the book pondered about Verity - that if it was allowed that he could marry two women, he would have liked to marry Verity just for her kindness and generosity of spirit. I thought that was really nice. Link to comment
