Could someone help me out with a scene?

Post by lyra70 » Sat Apr 21, 2007 6:26 am

I have actually only seen the last 4 eps on tv (over and over again since I taped them!) but missed the first two, and right now budget restraints dictate that I can't afford to buy the DVD...so I am wondering (hoping) someone here can kindly describe to me in detail the scene where Jason turns down Caroline when she proposes to him - why did she? and why did he turn her down? I will try to rent this dvd eventually but my neighborhood store doesn't have it! thanks so much!

SPOILERS to anyone who has not watched TSW first 2 eps

Lets see, Caroline propositioned Sir Mark, cause she was feeling bad about the death of her father. She knew Mark would be leaving Washington, and there would not be any "strings attached"...
She told him "You care, but you don't get involved" or something to
that effect.

I think Sir Mark turned her down, cause he knew she was grieving over the loss of her father, and maybe cause she had also been sitting there
drinking. I dont think he wanted her to feel bad about it the next day...

Caroline had called Mark, you see him riding in the cab, but you hear
their conversations..."Is everything alright, I can't sleep", etc..

Marks meets Caroline in the bar at a local Hotel...
Hope this helps...

Now, these are only my opinions...what I got from the scenes...

Trivia FYI, ahoy ...

I'm pretty sure that scene was filmed in the Royal York Hotel, judging from the lobby.

lyra, I had the same problem. When this DVD became available, I looked everywhere for it, and could not find it in any store.
I think I ended up buying it from Amazon.com
Was anyone able to find it in a store and buy it direct?
Mr Jason has stated before that you could start watching TSW at
episode 3 and it would still be possible to catch on...

I caught it on ep 3 indeed and found the whole thing nail-biting. I only wish I'd seen the first two eps!! I already bought "Brotherhood" so will wait a bit to purchase this one. Depends on the budget...:(

Sorry, Lyra--my budget's not as tight these days, but that time is not too long ago!
The other reason I think Mark declined Caroline's proposition was her involvement with Capt. Corporate (I can't remember his name!). I don't remember if they were engaged or anything so formal, but I think it was his perception that a liaison with Mark would be infidelity on Caroline's part.
