* Considering the way Christian [[ControlFreak treats]] Ana and [[CrazyJealousGuy reacts]] to other men so much as breathing in her vicinity, one can only imagine how he's going to be around [[spoiler: their daughter, especially when she reaches her teens]]. He's going to take the [[spoiler: OverprotectiveDad act]] to a ''[[UpToEleven whole]]'' new level, especially given he never had any problems stalking the women in his life before.

Added DiffLines:

* Come to think of it, both of [[spoiler: Ana and Christian's children]] probably won't turn out too well. Ana mentions in ''Freed'''s epilogue that [[spoiler: Teddy already seems to be [[StrongFamilyResemblance taking after Christian]] at the tender age of two]]. She finds him endearingly bossy...imagine what he'll be like as ''a teen''. Christian as a teen was a violent and anti-social alcoholic who hated his parents and fell victim to a sexual predator, contributing to his severe emotional issues as an adult. Meanwhile, considering how horrible and controlling Christian can be to Ana and her meek and spineless attitude towards him, it seems at least plausible that [[spoiler: Phoebe and Teddy will grow up believing this is a normal way to treat a romantic partner, which doesn't bode well for either of them]]. Christian also rarely seems capable of displaying affection without flinging his money at people while Ana is a passive enabler, so it's entirely possible [[spoiler: the kiddies will grow up [[SpoiledBrat spoiled rotten]] and/or [[ParentalNeglect emotionally neglected]]]]. And this isn't even getting into Christian's ideas around discipline and obedience, most of which involve intimidating and/or threatening people into doing whatever he wants. Who's to say he wouldn't act the same towards [[spoiler: his children]]? He himself had extreme reservations about [[spoiler: fatherhood, especially if the child were a girl]]. Ana seems to think everything's rosy at the end of ''Freed'', but she's not exactly been the best judge of characters or situations before (e.g. her thinking it's sweet and adorable that [[spoiler: little Teddy is already taking after his father]]).

** Step 5, shutting down dissent. '''Shut down the target's dissent by threatening to withhold The Prize''': After he has her agreement in the form of the NDA, Christian shows her his playroom and the less romantic side of being wit him- the BDSM. And when Ana gets worried and would potentially back out, he shuts her dissent by threatening to withhold the romance she craves.

Added DiffLines:

** Whoa, whoa. Who said anything about two weeks? It was two years! She Leila did not have a mental breakdown after Christian found out, she had a mental breakdown after her husband died AND she found out that Christian was seeing Ana and not even in the same way that Leila and Christian were seeing each other.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Wait, what happened to the husband? WHERE IS HER HUSBAND?'' Did Christian break up a healthy relationship between a married couple out of jealousy.


* As pointed out in Das Sporking, Leila and Christian broke up, and Leila moved on to another man. Two weeks after she married him, Christian found out, and she suffered a sudden mental breakdown and was promptly involuntarily committed to a mental hospital, even though it takes a long and complicated legal process to get someone involuntarily committed. Doesn't this scene look like Christian [[CrazyJealousGuy had a jealous fit]], pulled some strings to get Leila committed, and her current mental state is the result of her [[GoAmongMadPeople going among mad people]]?
