This storyboard does not have a description.
Blanche is an aging woman living in a daze. She feels as though she should be treated like royalty and is very high maintenance. Almost needing constant reminding that she is beautiful, Blanche's egocentricity is rooted in her past. Her young love, Alan treated her magnificently and fulfilled her desires. The attention that came from Alan was because Alan was gay and had a more effeminate outlook on Blanche. When Blanche drunkenly confronted Alan about his sexuality, Alan went into a a depression and killed himself. Blanche is now haunted with the weight of this event and attempts to numb her pain with material desires.
You damn women are ruining poker night!

I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
Blanche admits to her acceptance of men coming in and out of her life in a subtle way. She uses these men to help herself feel like she is still desired, in an attempt to numb the pain of her past rejections .
The misogynistic treatment of Blanche in the first event shows the unstable environment Blanche has been put in, that she is not used to. Along with the second event she reverts to her old ways of seducing men in her favor. This exemplifies the double standard that men are superior to women, while women are unclean for having multiple lovers.
