This storyboard does not have a description.
Nora's confrontation with Krogstad: As Nora boasts to Krogstad about her influential powers over Torvald it gives him the idea to use her to regain his previous position. The notion that Nora takes pride in her actions without any external compliments reveals her desire to feel influential and important, to be in control. The reason behind this is that she may sense and fear the rejection of her significance on account of her gender.
Nora's fear of corruption and realisations of her actions: Through her conversation with Krogstad, Nora realises the repercussions of her actions and is also influenced by Krogstad the harm she can do to her children. This scene is significant because it sets up the convoluted situation Nora will experience in the coming acts. It is also important because it once again references to the importance that a parent's actions can have on their children. Restating the significance of the theme of inheritance throughout the play.
Nora's development of moral integrity: Despite initially accepting Dr. Rank's offer to help her under her influence. Once she learned of his true feelings for her, he immediately shuts off and moves on from her previous offer. This shows her evolution of moral integrity, which is significant because growth and development are one of the main themes emphasised throughout the play.
Nora confesses to Dr. Rank that Torvald is similar to her father: This scene reveals and foreshadows later events in the play. By comparing living with Torvald as similar to living with her father, doubt is shadowed on her depth of love to Torvald. This causes her to realise the current social conformity about how husband's and wives should live, and how it is morally wrong.
Nora's faith and vision in Torvald: As Torvald furiously scolds Nora about the consequences of her actions. Nora realises that Torvald only see's her as a possession, a "doll". She also realises that Torvald only was concerned with amusing himself and feeling loved rather than genuinely concerning for Nora's wellbeing and feelings. This was the obligatory push that Nora needed to further develop her character and awakening.
Nora leaving the Household: This moment signifies Nora's development as a character as it is an act of seeking independent will despite what Torvald wants. This is owed to her awakening that she is human and not a doll, which she owes it to herself to explore her ambitions, personality, and future.
