Despite the protagonist’s clear devastation following Doodle’s death and the many memorable and endearing moments the brothers share, Doodle’s death is confirmation that destruction and manipulation conquer in the end. Doodle’s death specifically was expected to occur early on; however, he beats his nearly impossible odds and survives with many physical restrictions. Initially, the protagonist doesn’t attempt to understand Doodle or accept his imperfections; to him, Doodle was a “disappointment,” and his death was not significant. However, as the brothers spent time together, the protagonist began to understand Doodle’s loving, bold personality. He grows to love Doodle and their relationship appeared passionate and rewarding, but his underlying motives to help his brother revealed many complications in their relationship.

They struggle to make the right judgment (hamartia), and with certain flaws throughout their plays, make it hard for these characters to realize the truth (anagnorisis). However, through certain evidence and different obstacles Oedipus and Willy’s demise is caused by their hamartia. Although these characters experience hope along the way, their pride and egotistical lifestyles outweigh the hope that they receive to get their life back on track.
