don't you remember Caroline's musings? Apparently she thought so too. And that she and Ross suited better too.
Caroline took a long draught of wine, half a glass as against Ross's sip. She leaned back against the red plush. 'For instance, Ross, I could lie happily with you tonight,' His eyes went quickly up to hers. 'Could you?" 'Yes. In fact I've always wanted to - as perhaps you know.' 'Do I?''I think so. I believe you could take me as few other men could take me - matching my arrogance with your own.' There was silence between them. 'But...' she said.

'Could you?"... 'Do I?'
and they're the two least unselfish and devoted of the show.
it appears that elizabith is to be married to george. and that would be a huge slap to mike's face.
Who on God's green earth is Mike?
This series should be judged on its own merit. I only mentioned the old series and the books by way of interest.
In this series Demelza did seduce a guy who was in love with someone else.
It also begs the question. Did Debbie Horsefield do the story a service by making Elizabeth into this warm caring character?
You brought up statements about Demelza that are not in this series nor in the books and you cannot expect other posters to let that go.
Demelza seduced Ross while he was still holding a torch for Elizabeth. In the older version (whether true to the books or not) Ross and Elizabeth planned to defy convention and run away together. Elizabeth had already informed her husband Francis, quite a monumental decision. Demelza got pregnant and Ross did the right thing, not for him, for Demelza.
It was a lot more mutual than you seem willing to accept.
In this series Elizabeth isn't the ogre everyone was expecting and it seems they hold that against her.
Outside of a pretty face, I can't see why Ross, Francis, and George are all so in awe of Elizabeth. She does NOTHING; she has no spark, no fire, no motivation. She's just there.
she must have felt a desperate urge to act on her emotions... a sort of "now or never" moment. I don't think she had any grander plan beyond that evening, and she certainly wasn't deluding herself into thinking she could be Ross's wife.
but the biggest problem with the way Elizabeth is portrayed all nicey-nicey in this series is that her character is totally b o r i n g. A selfish, manipulative Elizabeth would have been far, far more interesting to watch! 😋
It would have been really fun to see Reed sink her teeth into a few juicy scenes of Elizabeth's selfishness and manipulation!
Demelza got pregnant and Ross did the right thing, not for him, for Demelza. I feel no sympathy for her.
