#LesMis & unexplained decisions 

One thing about that always seemed odd: at times we see the start of someone's inner turmoil in great detail, but the POV pulls away before we can see how they actually *make* the decision.

Ex: When Valjean heads to the barricade to...save Marius? Make sure he dies? Who knows?

This time through, I understand: he hasn't decided, but he can't let fate take the responsibility away from him.
