T&L manipulate MR and Thurs. Guests into proposing their marriage.
Every character is Selfish and egocentric.
MR worries about T dying, not because of T's life but because she doesn't want to be left alone.
T&L 'work' to manipulate MR and Thursdays guests so they can be reunited.
Thurs guests want to keep coming, the death of T would probably bring this to an end.
The death of C wounded both MR and L.
L with the scar and MR with a "wound within her that had never stopped bleeding since C's death"
MR believes T is wounded as well. We can see the plan commencing to work.
After speaking with Michaud she starts to realize that T needs a husband. Even though this means the forgetting of C and therefore his 2nd death. She has no problem with this since it would bring her happiness in the end as T wouldn't die.
MR says that if this goes on it would be like ETERNAL MISERY.
She would have T but she is like a PLANT. Just like not having her there.
Starts to look for a husband for T.
Shop represents the characters mood.
When T is quiet and pretending to mourn, the shop is CHILLY and DANK. LOOKS LIKE A TOMB. / LIFE HAD NOT BEEN WORTH LIVING.
When L is around, it is BRIGHT and happier.
When the Thurs. G are here is it WARM. A sense of family. FIRE, TEA, PEOPLE.
MR considers T's marriage a VEY IMPORTANT MATTER. But not for T's happiness.
"SINCE THE POOR OLD THING WAS EVEN MORE CONCERNED FOR HERSELF THAN FOR T; SHE WANTED TO GET HER MARRIED IN SUCH A WAY TO BE HAPPY HERSELF."
LAURENCE plays the part of a SYMPATHETIC, OBLIGING, fellow.
