Melanie dies and Ashley finally tells Scarlett he has aways loved Melanie. Scarlett realizes she does not care and that she does after all love Rhett. Rhett, however, has given up on waiting for her love and leaves her. She decides to return to Tara and to think of a way to get him back - after all tomorrow is another day.
Question: When Scarlett visits Rhett in jail to get the $300 for taxes, can anyone speculate as to her plan? Why does she pretend to be rich when she's actually dirt poor? Why would that make her request for money more convincing? Did she plan to ask for a loan, and needed to make it appear as if she would be able to repay it in a reasonable amount of time? I read the book, but this wasn't made clear there either. Can anyone help me?
