Another Elizabeth in Foyle’s life didn’t fare so well either:

F: Elizabeth –
E: How are you, Christopher? I mean, are you happy?
F: Well, uh, we’re at war. And I do worry about Andrew.
E: I’m not happy. I’ve been married to Arthur for twenty years. It was our wedding anniversary a week ago. He’s been very kind to me. He’s a very kind man.

Elizabeth Lewes visits Foyle to declare her abiding love for him, but her hopes for a reconciliation are quickly crushed.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov’d,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.
Sonnet 116

Realized while updating this post that Amanda Root is almost 15 years younger than Michael Kitchen. The age difference isn’t especially glaring in Fifty Ships, thanks to most of us having become inured to ageism on screen, but going back in time, it would mean that Foyle proposed to Elizabeth when she was no more than 10 years old. No wonder she had to obey her father’s wishes!

    Being turned down by MK after declaring your never dying love….can’t get much worse.

    She turned him down first. BIG mistake. HUGE. She couldn’t have done much worse. She should’ve said, “Sorry Dad, I love him and that’s that.” Not an easy thing to do in those days, go against your father; but better face that than a life of misery and regret.
    (hint Elizabeth: He’s got his principles, and stands by them. That’s not because he’s hard, it’s because he’s FOYLE.)

    Yes, Sonnet 116 is perfect for this scene, KT. Thank you for suggesting it for Shakespeare Sunday.
