Yes, BJR is a psychopath and he is attempting to completely defile another human being. He is very different from Jamie. When Jamie tries to physically and psychologically dominate Claire, he realizes he has to lose himself, also. They are apart of each other. (I found this scene more disturbing than the beating, but finally reconciled myself that Jamie actually understands neither partner can subsume the other. That is love.) BJR is attempting to abnegate Jamie’s identity. His wanting Jamie to tell him he loves him because such a declaration would completely defeat and destroy him. Did anyone else have trouble with the scene between Jamie and Clair?
