Sweeney Todd, the angel of his own imagining, as the reader knows him, and as was depicted throughout the whole play, would never have allowed himself to have been snuck up on by a buffoon seeking revenge for a love which never existed. For Sweeney to have died in such a way proves beyond all shadow of a doubt that he was no longer the Sweeney which had so gracefully ended the lives of so many.

Farther into the reason as to why is because Mrs. Shears and Father had been fighting, and he felt as though she loved the dog more than him. He lost it and killed the Wellington, which goes to show he isn’t very stable and when things don’t go the way he wants he loses himself.
Grierson did not have any friends throughout her life because of the way she was raised, by an overbearing father that took control of her mind. Some crimes that occur come from those individuals dealing problems in their past or present causing them to do things that will hurt themselves physically, emotionally, and mentally. In this case her controlling father, Mr. Grierson, took that form of being the “man of the household” a little too far. “Emily is such a tragic figure who forever lives under her father’s domination…” (Fang 20). Whatever Mr. Grierson said goes, and Emily had to abide by his authority as long as she lived.
