VS
Hi, noob here. I'm having a DS renaissance and reading the last post on Victoria made me itch to post about VS - just a couple of things that bug me and one thing I love.

- One apparent plot-hole is the phone call Victoria makes to Jolly. Ray and Fraser break into Jolly's hotel room, discover that Jolly knows Ray's address, ring Victoria at Ray's and send her to the zoo. She tears out straight away.

In the next episode Ray tells Fraser that Victoria made a call, from Ray's house, to Jolly, 15 minutes before F&R got to his hotel: "She didn't leave anything to chance." How then did Jolly know to go to the zoo? If Victoria sent him there, isn't it a massive coincidence that Fraser suggests the same place to her?

She also grabs the banister and picks up the phone barehanded, then runs out without wiping her prints.

- Another thing, but this could just be me being dense: how does Fraser know she's going to the station? He sees tickets when he's in her her car, but aren't they airline tickets?

- One thing I really love - it's always snowing for Fraser when Victoria is around. We don't see any snow from V's POV, but Victoria is always cold.

- Another thing I love and hate: Paul Gross crying = me in floods of tears. It's not just limited to DS, though. I watched a bit of Chasing Rainbows the other day, just skimming it, came across him crying, and promptly lost it. Same with Slings and Arrows. Why?! Make him stop!

1) Jolly is outside the Vecchio house and follows her to the zoo. She only told him she was there imo.

2)If Fraser has the key, he guesses train station? I was sure tickets were for the train too. Hmm.

Ah, thank you. That makes more sense.

To me, the snow represents the fact that Fraser only sees Victoria as she was when he found her at the lee-side of the mountain: helpless, near-death and completely stripped of past and outside influence. In other words, Victoria and Fraser were exactly alike and both completely innocent.

When Fraser was with her in the pass he fell for the angelic image of her, lost in the falling snow with the most beautiful voice.

To me only Fraser sees the falling snow because he only sees Victoria as that pure, innocent woman. He knows better, but he can't see her any other way. He is lost in that moment and he stays lost there even after Ray shoots him.

It's not until "Letting go" that he comes to terms with it.

I don't see the snow as symbolizing Victoria "coldness" but rather it symbolizes Frazer's view of her purity and innocence.
