During 'Gustave! Gustave!' Gustave says, 'Please Miss Giry I want to go back!' but his mouth doesn't move. The shot is from the scene afterwards when Meg takes him to the pier to drown him before the confrontation, while the other scene is in Coney while Christine & the Phantom are looking for him.

Beyond the spectacular singing, beautiful costumes, and amazing set design, Love Never Dies was a great disappointment. The story is simply not good: plot holes, out-of-character actions, and an absurd ending. I found it difficult to sympathize or identify with the characters. The plot also lacks narrative cohesion, almost as if the entire story is a weak collection of character vignettes. The conflicts of the plot are too dispersed to create a strong narrative. The lyrics also leave something to be desired. The whole thing came off as a musical version of a mediocre fan fiction. This was a very poor follow-up to the incomparable Phantom of the Opera.
