I didn't want to like Toddie & Evangaline , but I'm starting to , in spite of myself :~ I think that they bring a balance to eachother . I like the way the writers have written this story , it doesn't seem forced . It's more gradual , like we , the viewers can see it , but they don't fully realize it themselves . Though it seems Todd is more aware than Evangaline . Todd wants Evangaline to see a better part of him ,and with her , especially during the time of his trial , He showed a more human side of himself ,. who knows - maybe this leopard could change his spots .and I think with Todd , Evangaline would , be forced to stop be so controlled and rigid .Maybe she could make Todd be a better man .
