He didn’t take it very seriously when it was Mary who was married and not him! lol… Mary says, “what difference could it make?” About Francis possibly sending guards to kill Bash, and he says, “It could change your heart!!” And then he tells her to meet him where they kissed…c’mon Torrance! Bash doesn’t take marriage that seriously, how could he?? He’s the son of a friggin mistress!!! lol
I disagree. Like, completely?
Anyone and everyone makes mistakes in the period of time after a breakup. We can all go a little crazy, and act convinced that the dumper is making a huge mistake. Even if someone breaks up with you and tells you they hate you, whatever, you can behave irrationally and believe that you must fight at all costs to get them back. And then you look back months later, with a “WHAT WAS I THINKING AM I NORMAL?” horrid feeling. So, Bash ‘arguing’ with Mary after the wedding is something even the most ‘moral’ or ‘normal’ person can be capable of. He wasn’t thinking “you should be unfaithful to Francis,” he was stuck in that “I can’t believe you dumped me my heart is in pieces" phase. Plus, a part of for him was ensuring that Mary understood who she might be married to, he wasn’t trying to win her back with the whole “Francis may have tried to kill me” bit. It’s a stretch to think so.
But more importantly, the thing I want to say…. is that I think Bash as the product of a mistress makes him more inclined to be serious about marriage and loyalty. I think it bugs me that you think otherwise? That just because his mother is a mistress, he has no positive feeling toward the seriousness of a marriage? That is an insult to Bash; every episode we have only seen him act out of utter loyalty to the people he loves. He does not approve of unfaithfulness in a marriage. There’s a reason he mentioned he had a distaste for Kenna right after the wedding; because of her standing as a former mistress. And the way he discusses marriage and loyalty with Kenna this whole episode…. it only points to him as a supporter of it, and not one to be flippant about being unfaithful. He was so upset when he thought she went to King Henry! And he doesn’t even love her, it’s because they are married. That means something to him.
OK so yes, I should not have been so flippant. However, I don’t think marriage is what he takes seriously, I think its relationships and responsibilities. He takes care of people, especially people he sees himself as being responsible for (IE Kenna, Rowan, Mary, his mother, the young princes, even Francis).
A key part of a book to film adaptation is just how loyal the script is to the source material.
For The Fault in Our Stars, it’s nearly identical.
