I think Angelica dieing watching the stars with marco by her side is beatifull. In a funny way, it almost shows that there is another way for the girls. She didn? die in a field with a bullet through her brain like poor rejected Elsa did. She died at piece and reasonably free of pain. She died happy, and quietly, without excess trauma. Not on some cold, blood splatered ground somewhere. The fact the others have finally shown outward expressions of joy (with the singing etc) shows the gift of humanity they have won and I think that anges death is a nice counterpoint. This wouldn? work so well if she was just asleep, but the ambiguity really makes it something more again. It forces you to think on both sides. Beautifully done I must say.
