    I have always thought that the point of Agnes’ payoff in this story is that she doesn’t get the “happy ending” to play the romantic lead because, however hard she fights it, she is in her bones a witch. As we know witches only deal with the real and do not do well in stories so this romantic adventure was never going to work out for her; the choice to keep Christine instead is a depressing but more ‘real’ way for Agnes’ life to go.
