I'd actually put money some of these making it into the series.
All the more why I had/have no problem with Demelza getting her groove on with Hugh, even if it was well over a year since May 9. No time limit for Demelza in my book.
Ross is the one who devalued his marriage so he can hardly hold it against Demelza for treating it with the same ill regard that he has demonstrated it deserves.
"Demelza, I must speak with you about Elizabeth. You need to know that I've been devoted to her for my entire adult life, and that I sure had a good time in bed with her six months ago. But other than that, she means nothing to me. Can't we put all this behind us?"
These are all pieces of conversations between Ross and Demelza in the latter part of Warleggan.
I've read little of the books, but another issue I have with the series is with some of the dialogue, e.g., answering a question with a question. RP does this frequently. I don't care for it
Yikes! Ross's narcissism has been evident for sometime, further evidence he is bordering on sociopathy.
Point 1 was not a difficult prediction to make. Sure enough, judging from the commentary by fans all over the Web, it appears that the three camps of "looked consensual to me," "they're promoting rape myths," and "that was straight-up rape" have one common opinion: they hate Ross now.
After watching episode 9, I'm just having trouble figuring out why Ross says the line in #4, "No doubt I did." Not sure how it was meant in the book but Aidan didn't say it in a way that could be construed as bragging or self-satisfied but I can't figure out what he means by it. What is his intention in saying it at all?
I got the impression from the books (which I read years ago) and from the original series that he realized he had been chasing an illusion. That Elizabeth was selfish and vacuous compared to Demelza
"No doubt I did." Not sure how it was meant in the book but Aidan didn't say it in a way that could be construed as bragging or self-satisfied but I can't figure out what he means by it. What is his intention in saying it at all?
I detected a combination of ruefullness and self-disparaging.
isn't it the always the way that one never truly appreciates what one has until one loses it.
