But Connie has no candle (and no flowers), only a hatchet that appears and disappears.
If you're waiting for a grand conclusion in which I grouse about the loss of the candle, I'll surprise you. Constance should not have it. The candle is not in any way a nuptial accouterment but belongs to someone who is trying to see
, someone looking for something, someone on a search. The candle is for the victim
looking for justice, for vindication, or for clues as to what happened, or for something lost. The villains
, on the other hand, are not curious. They already know what happened, since they did it. They want darkness, obscurity, a continuing cover-up. Bad guys do not
forlornly search; they want the truth to stay hidden.
So the Imagineers' instincts were right: No candle for Constance.
