Juliet helped James grow up and become the man who had long been buried inside.
James understood what it meant to have an equal partner and someone who accepted him for who he was.
When Juliet was pulled into the hole, James’ sheer terror was laid bare on his face as he desperately cling to her hand.
The loss almost undid him, but Juliet’s love kept him whole through more unbearable losses.
When he finally left the Island, it was as the man who had loved and lost, but would survive to honour her.
“Their love awakened them both.”
