It seems like Blanche’ ranting toward Stella but it actually likes Blanche talks to herself. First of all, after yesterday’s poker game, drunken Stanley cruelly abused Stella in public. However, Stanley’s sweet words and frank actions persuade Stella to forgive him, go back home, and spend the night with him. On the one hand, Blanche cannot understand why Stella decides to tolerate Stanley’s violent behaviors.

She does this with the intention of making her chance of getting chosen minimal. This action shows that her entire character transitions to a cowardly adult who clearly thinks more of herself then her own children. Any other guardian would choose to spare their children’s lives and offer themselves as a way to keep them alive.
