The Heart of the Matter. A weekly blog on things that matter to those who love TDBM. This week's matter- times Lucien and Jean chose to stay. (Warning: there may be spoilers.)
Because this is Valentine’s week, I thought it would be fun to discuss Lucien and Jean’s romance – as if we need an excuse! I was thinking about all the times Lucien and Jean choose to stay – to stick it out and make their relationship work. For me, it started with Episode 1.2 when Jean applies for a job with the Royal Cross Hotel. After pretending to be indifferent and saying it is her business, Lucien asks her to remain in the house even if she gets the job. He wants her to help him - a blind eye, a good talking to from time to tiime. She agrees. At the end, when she tells him she doesn’t expect to get the job, he tears up and says he's rather glad. What times do you remember when they choose to stay?
