Part N Applying theories of Todorov • Opening Sequence – Everything started good- him proposing – Then, becomes complicated- she sees John with someone else, suspicion – New equilibrium- for the audience to watch and find out more • Whole Story – He proposes to Lily, she moved in with John and started to be over protective – Lily saw Nevaeh’s text to John and followed him and saw Nevaeh with him – They broke up because Lily thinks that he’s cheating – But went back together knowing that Nevaeh is only his close friend
Applying the Theories of Propp• Opening Sequence and Whole Story – Main character is John as the story revolves around him – Second character is Lily, because she is the one who will react on the first and second scenes – Villain is Nevaeh, because she is the one that will make Lily feel jealous
