* '''Justified''': Princess Carol cares about Bob, and Bob certainly doesn't deserve to be executed. The logical course of action would be to appeal to her father, who has the authority to spare Bob.

Princess Carol cares about Bob, and Bob certainly doesn't deserve to be executed. The logical course of action would be to appeal to her father, who has the authority to spare Bob.


Added DiffLines:

** Bob is royalty to another kingdom, and Princess Carol persuades her father that killing him could ignite a war between their kingdom and Bob's, which they know is the stronger of the two in terms of military might.


Added DiffLines:

** Bob is only a commoner, so there's nothing for the king to gain by sparing him. This leads to him giving his daughter Carol an ultimatum where he'll spare Bob only if she'll accept an ArrangedMarriage with RoyalBrat David in order to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom.

* '''Exploited''': ???
When Carol is begging, the king realizes it's because she loves him, and even though Bob is the prince of a defeated state, taking the pardon and then letting them marry will politically resolve the war.

** "My child, just make a formal plea. You don't need to make a spectacle of yourself.



* '''Played For Laughs''': While grasping her father's [[RequisiteRoyalRegalia ermine robes]], Carol then gets jealous that her [[PimpedOutCape capes]] aren't [[PrettyInMink lined with ermine]], and then beg for that as well as for Bob's life.
* '''Played For Drama''': Carol's pleading reminds the king of when he was a young boy and the kingdom's old enemy killed his mother despite his own begging. This makes him realize what a bitter man he's become, and tries not to break into tears himself as he apologizes for the way he's been acting, and will of course spare Bob.

** Princess Carol's father orders Bob beheaded. Princess Carol begs her father not to behead Bob. But then she reveals what she wants done instead: dip Bob feet first into molten lead, because she's really a lot madder at Bob than her father is.

** The king, touched by Carol's begging, pardons Bob. Bob was every bit as dangerous as the king thought, and promptly raises an army, overthrows the king, and kills him. Bob lectures Carol about the folly of mercy to your enemies before killing her too.
