    I wrote about how Lennie learnt his lesson but it's too late ("Dutifully" and "Obeyed George" - contrasts to start of novella). The repetition of "Almost see it" when talking about the ranch emphasizes how close they were and George may be trying to trick himself into believing that he isn't fated to fail that dream. I also said that Lennie must die because as the sun sets, the men approach faster, so like the sun sets, Lennie must die. I talked about language a bit, I commented on how "bluer" had connotations of cold and dead because Lennie is going to die.
