The Inspector then rips away at the two families (Mr, Mrs, Sheila and Eric Birling as well as Gerald Croft) over an Eva Smith’s death. The Inspector’s repetitive questions make the characters shatter under pressure and ruins the proposed marriage between Sheila Birling and Gerald Croft, which therefore ruins the anticipated unity between.
Gerald felt devastated after he found out that Eva committed suicide, he blamed himself. Unlike Mr Birling who showed no remorse what so ever, but Gerald does remind me of him as Mr Birling owns a business and Gerald is the son of the owner of Croft Ltd, which is the biggest business in the area. They have the same business sense and ideas on.
