SPOILER ALERT. But, if you haven't seen Titanic by this point, there's most likely something wrong with you.
As a whole, Titanic couldn't really get much more depressing if it tried. The ending still brings us to tears every time (THEY FINALLY GOT TO BE TOGETHER), and it definitely doesn't make for drama-free, light viewing — best paired with wine and chocolate of some description (and a packet of Kleenex for sobbing purposes).
However, a newly uncovered deleted scene has gone somewhat viral as of recently, bringing an even more shattering conclusion to the nearly three-hour-long film and also presenting a whole range of new questions about the livelihoods of some of the main characters. Now, we're asking questions we didn't even know we had.
This is in extension to the original scene, where Rose spots and hides from her ill-fated ex Cal (played by Billy Zane), who was NOT in a good mood after losing his love interest AND the priceless Heart of the Ocean. Joseph Bruce Ismay, the cowardly designer of RMS Titanic, also appears alongside a fraught Ruth.
If you're like us, you probably hated Rose's mother in the film — she did value her social standing and finances over her daughter's happiness (never forget the infamous "Will the lifeboats be seated according to class?" comment) — but the scene is pretty gut-wrenching and not for the faint-of-heart, and makes us feel pretty sympathetic for her, no matter how horrible she was. Watch below.
The comments below the YouTube video show that almost everyone feels the same way about the scene — that it's pretty much the pinnacle of depressing, and probably should have been kept in the film. But hey, at almost three hours, James Cameron probably couldn't make the movie much longer, even if he wanted to.
It also makes us wonder how awful Rose's life would have been if she were, in fact, reunited with her family — she'd be forcefully married to Cal, and wouldn't experience any of the other Jack-inspired life experiences that led her to become the heroic 100-year-old Rose Calvert we see 84 years later.
Regardless, NVM. We'll just be over here sobbing.
