10 Catherine’s life is in turmoil once Newt reappears and belatedly declares his love for her. His timing is awful; Catherine is to be married to another man in one week. “I love you,” he said...”Too late,” she said.

20 The biggest conflict Newt and Catharine face is that Catharine is getting married in a week. This stops Catharine from expressing her love for Newt because she’s hesitant of facing the consequences of canceling her wedding.

She’s afraid of the controversy loving Newt might stir up.
