Top Ten PHRACK Scenes-Number 7
End scene all three seasons
Okay, so I’m cheating a bit here but each scene is equally important and delightful.
Kitchen scene end s1:
I adore that they are lost in each other’s eyes in the kitchen. In that moment, no-one else exists. It takes Dot to remind her of her guests to break the moment. It’s a measure of how important Jack has become to Phryne that she asks him to help her celebrate. Her hand on his emphasises her heartfelt request. Also, I think the shot at the end of Jack leaning against the doorway watching Phryne is probably my favourite. (Warning:Gratuitous shot of Jack ahead)
Stairs scene at the end of season 2.
I think we all collectively held our breath after Phryne left Jack comforting Rosie. Would he decide to return to her? But then we saw him in the car, obviously debating with himself and we all breathed a sigh of relief when he knocked on the door. A man of honour? Not always Miss Fisher and then DAMMIT Aunt P shattered our dreams. Still, it established the setting for season 3 rather nicely.
And finally the farewell scene at the airfield at the end of S3.
Whilst I still have trouble with how Jack could possibly be expected to follow her, I adore the interchange between them. Phryne is most definitely committing to him by asking him to follow. She will always seek adventure but she makes it clear she wants Jack by her side. And it’s about time we were finally rewarded with a kiss and what a delightful kiss it was. Arms flailing, feet stamping and a collective ‘aawww’ , closely followed by ‘About bloody time’ could be heard across the country as hearts melted everywhere.
