Eloi’s conflict and ultimate tragedy center on his suppressed sexuality and his inability to acknowledge and accept his emotional and physical needs.

Dolly Bland and Beulah, two local townswomen, set up a buffet table in the store and discuss the poor state of Jabe Torrance’s health. Cassandra (Sandra) Whiteside visits the store in need of cartridges for her pistol, and she helps herself to them.
