THE WINNER TAKES IT ALL
Eventually, Gwen's wedding was not a complete disaster. The calm had returned and the guests enjoyed the party.
IANTO: Ianto was replacing the DJ, when he saw that Jack and Gwen were dancing “I don’t wanna talk about the things we’ve gone through, but now you’re married, Gwen, I hope I never have to worry anymore, you can not hurt me anymore. Though it’s hurting me now it’s history I’ve played all my cards and that’s what you’ve done too nothing more to say no more ace to play You want him, but now, you have Rhys, you have to let Jack be with me. I did my part, he stays with me, I know that deep down I must fight with your memory, but you belong to Rhys and Jack belongs just with me. The winner takes it all the loser standing small beside the victory that’s her destiny. I know I'm his second choice, it hurts a lot, but he’s with me and I will always fight for him, he has to be with me forever. I’m sorry, Gwen, at last, I think I win, I do not mind being the consolation prize this time.”
GWEN: Gwen was dancing in Jack’s arms, she was lost in those beautiful blue eyes “I was in your arms thinking I belonged there I figured it made sense building me a fence building me a home thinking I’d be strong there but I had to wake up to reality. You can not give me what I want, Rhys can do it. Oh Jack, I tried, I know that with a word from me would be enough for you and I were together. But now I’m married with Rhys and you are with Ianto, I do not want to hurt either of them. I'm very angry because you are with Ianto, but I have to give you, despite my heart is split in two. But I was a fool playing by the rules so I have to be good. So, Ianto, he's all yours, I give him to you.”
RHYS: Rhys looked at his wife and Jack dancing. "Well, well, dashing hero, fate was on my side.The gods may throw a dice their minds as cold as ice and someone way down here loses someone dear. I know she admires you, maybe she is a little in love with you, but at the end, she married me. I won the fight, Captain Harkness. The winner takes it all the loser has to fall it’s simple and it’s plain why should I complain. But I'm not blind, I see how she looks at you and how you look at her, but sorry, she is my wife and not yours.
TOSH: Tosh split his gaze between Jack and Gwen dancing and Owen who was at his side. "You, you fell under her charms, too. She had to stand in our way, you had kissed me first. But tell me does she kiss like I used to kiss you? Does it feel the same when she calls your name? But you had to get involved with her too. Somewhere deep inside you must know I miss you despite all you know that I love you. And now, you do not want me because you're dead, but I do not care at all. But what can I say, rules must be obeyed.”
OWEN: Owen was lost in thought. “The judges will decide the likes of me abide, I'm dead, I do not believe I deserve it. I loved Katie, I wanted to marry her. And now, I can not marry anyone. Oh Gwen, you're lucky, you get married to Rhys, who loves you unconditionally. Now you're dancing with Jack, who also loves you, but you know he can not offer you anything. I’m really angry, poor Teaboy, I hope that Jack now behave better with him, he deserves it. And you have me, too, Gwen. You are a very naughty girl. Spectators of the show always staying low. But I am now a mere spectator. Tosh, I know she loves me, I would reciprocate, but she does not deserve to suffer, she does not deserve to be with a dead man can not offer her anything. Shit, death sucks!!!
JACK: Jack was sailing in a sea of emotions. “The game is on again, Gwen, I hope you'll be very happy. Honestly, I would have liked to be who you marry with, but I can give you any of the things Rhys could give you. I have to continue with my life, thought now that I have no right to be with you. Anyway, I have Ianto, sometimes I don’t know what is he for me, a lover or a friend a big thing or a small, I’m not sure what to think about him, I think I’m going to have time to know about it. Maybe I missed the chance to be happy with you, but that would have been at the expense of your own happiness. So, I wish the best for you, Gwen, always, what else could I say, the winner takes it all.”
Gwen “I don’t wanna talk If it makes you feel sad”; Jack: And I understand you’ve come to shake my hand; Rhys: “I apologize if it makes you feel bad”; Owen: “Seeing me so tense”; Tosh: “No self-confidence”; Ianto: “But you see, the winner takes it all”; all of them: “The winner takes it all...”
