Description
Description: Fragments of the Flamingo Road theme are heard as Dan responds to Lane's revelation; the distortion of the theme here represents how Lane's dream has been torn apart by Titus's influence; Dan tells Lane "you thought if you married me, you'd be out of Titus's reach - you thought I had more power than he had and you'd be secure"; a few dramatic accents bring out the conflict in the scene
On-screen: Dan gets upset with Lane
