They’re not the only ones still saddened by Elvis’s departure. Keegan herself told Radiotimes.com she first wanted him to survive: “Yeah, I love romantic storylines and I’m like the audience – I would have loved them to live happily ever after and a part of me thinks that they should have.”
However, she has a good reason to think it was never going to work out between the two: “I would have loved to see them both leave the army together and have a normal life, but that would just never have happened because obviously they had the relationship with each other but they also had a relationship with the army and a lot of people who are in the army find it difficult to leave.”
So, we were never guaranteed a happy ending after all. And that knowledge might help us move past the memory of Elvis, right?
