Inevitably, Cole is the hero of piece – he destroys the antagonist, and even gets the girl (Melanie) at the end. But the most significant thing about the ending of this story is the meaning that it has for all the feminist commentary the movie contains. Bee’s arc is of a woman who makes a deal with the Devil, to do his bidding, in order to gain confidence and strength. She wants, more than anything, to be seen as a strong woman within the confines of a patriarchal society, and she submits to a patriarchal icon in order achieve that. In essence, she submits to patriarchal rules in order to become a stereotype defined by patriarchy; to fit in with, and be admired within a patriarchal social structure.
