Collage 208

Dolokhov is setting his "light, cold gaze" on Nicolai Rostov. Dolokhov has invited Rostov to the English Hotel on the eve of his return to the army. Dolokhov taunts Rostov, asking whether he is afraid to play cards with him.

"Behind his smile, Rostov saw in him that mood he had been in during the dinner at the club and generally at those times when, bored with everyday life, Dolokhov felt the necessity of getting out of it by some strange, most often cruel, act." Serious foreshadowing here! -- Lola
