Why is Alexandra so forgiving towards Frank even after the fit of rage he portrayed that killed her favorite brother?

I don't understand this either. If i was her i wouldn't be so forgiving. I think that the only reason is that she is letting go of the past and forgiving Frank for the thing that he did. Alexandra might have also felt that her brother was guilty in the whole situation too, messing around with a married woman

I think that Alexandra felt a sort of responsibility to forgive Frank. She states that it was wrong of Emil and Maria to be involved. Alexandra knew how Frank's temper was and I don't think she ever blamed him. It wasn't very smart of Emil and Maria to be involved like that. I think Alexandra actually kind of felt sorry for Frank because she could see it earlier that Maria and Emil's relationship was turning into more then just a friendship. Or she at least knew that they had different feelings for each other then what they used to. I believe Alexandra knew it wasn't all Frank's fault and she felt for him. It seemed he was very sorry.

Alexandra is so forgiving because she felt that it was Marie and Emil's fault that they were together. She even felt it may have been her own fault. She knew Frank just acted upon his emotions and that it truly wasn't his fault. She always believed in doing the right thing and she felt that instance was the right thing to do.
