Synopsis of the Scene
After an evening of being romanced by Husband, a euphoric Elizabeth tells Quilly that she plans to leave Harlem to move back with her young suitor to his small Southern town. Quilly reacts fearfully to the prospect of being left alone, triggering a confession -- and re-enactment -- of the true events that lead to the end of her marriage to Herman.
