Post Maria as a conniving seductress?
Dear "TSoM" Fans,

I know that "TSoM" will probably never be portrayed as ANYTHING except for a family-friendly story, but have you ever wondered if Maria is actually something of a conniving seductress, who angles for the captain, the position of a mother to those children, etc., ever since she learns about the infamous Baroness?

I mean, she COULD be pretending to be ignorant of the fact that she loves/ lusts after the Captain, when, in fact, she knows exactly what she wants, with regards to her possible future position in the Captain's life.

Could Maria's doe-eyed look be just that?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Till Next Time,

I want someone who's the deviant version of Fred MacMurray, David Tomlinson & William Schallert....but who has the looks of guys like Dan Haggerty, Kris Kristofferson & Tom Selleck.

Although I like the idea of Maria being more than just a doe eyed nun-in-training with a good heart, that's truly what she is. Besides, this show only has room for ONE conniving seductress, and it's already got it: Elsa. :lol:
