In response to THE END, how does everyone feel?????, written by Rita on October 20, 1997 at 20:41:37
] To be frank, I now look at the end of S&S quite differently- I feel sad for Marianne and Brandon.
] Marianne has lost a part of her (that), I find tragic........
] I now leave the question open???????????????
She has lost her wild teenage enthusiasm, but that's not necessarily a terrible thing. Everyone grows up eventually; she just got it all at once. She has traded in the stratospheric emotional highs and wracking emotional lows for a quieter, gentler, much more reliable happiness.
I think she and Brandon eventually will become one of those quietly devoted couples no one can imagine apart.
