I perceive Frank as more scarred, in a way, than cold. I think he was changed by war, and the separation from a wife that he never really had the chance to connect with or get to know.

I always fail to think about that with Frank, about how he was most likely scarred and changed by war. You can definitely see the difference between pre-war Frank and post-war Frank in the show (I don’t really remember much about Frank before the war in the books – I don’t think there was really anything). Pre-war Frank definitely appeared to be more romantic and spontaneous from the clips we’ve seen so far. Despite my feelings towards Frank and the sex scenes, I was touched by that one scene where Claire is shaving Frank’s face. And, my husband seems to think that Frank was being super romantic with a spontaneous wedding (though I disagree).
