Description
Description: Tremolo strings and sforzando accents set up a tense accompaniment for a minor-key version of the Flamingo Road theme, correlated with Titus's entry into the room; the theme is now played by a sinister oboe and uses the half-step resolution from the Titus motif; here Titus's influence begins to ruin Lane's success and relationship with Dan
On-screen: Titus enters the room
