This مضمون regards ONLY the 2004 ALW film and whatever it gives for a base. Because most seem to believe that in the film, she unmasekd him then for harmful and hateful means, یا alternatively just to try and gain him time to escape. I have another interpretation I haven't yet seen anyone share though I'm sure I'm not the only one who see it this way.
I firmly believe her means were not evil یا shallow. There was every reason for her not to remember that they were surrounded سے طرف کی thousands of people. And every emotional reason to unmask him.
Most importantly, she may have been reliving the first unmasking situation but on a مزید emotional and deep level because of the passion of the PoNR and the emotion exchange in that specific moment with his All I Ask Of آپ moment.
Remember how back in the lair, just before she unmasked him, she asked "Who's is the face in the mask?" and he had questioned if she dares to look یا even think of him because of his face, and کہا that fear could turn to love, that she'd learn to find and see the man behind the monster. So, maybe she meant to prove to herself and to him, that she does dare to look. Because she indeed had learned to see the man behind the monster and likely also loved him in some way. (Remember they had !10 years! of bonding between them.)
- She was scared before the دکھائیں began but obviously also didn't really want to betray her 'angel'. She even کہا it though not with that exact phrasing. She didn't want to endanger him, not with all her heart. As in, she was confused and uncertain to begin with.
- She was obviously not acting from the moment she begun to sing her part of PoNR. She was under his spell یا something. As in, she likely didn't remember she was in a play and surrounded سے طرف کی thousands of people, nor that it was supposed to be a trap.
- The moment he started to sing his version of 'All I Ask Of You', broke 'the spell' BUT kept her from remembering the real place and purpose of her being there. I believe this because she seemed somewhat surprised and then obviously deeply touched/moved سے طرف کی his words and emotion - in a very warm and heartfelt way and not in an angry way. Then her expression changes into a serious realizarion - and here comes my point, regarding all that I've already said; she realized just how awfully mixed feelings she had about this guy and that she hadn't yet seen his face in a good light. A face that had earlier proven to be an essential part of his issues.
----So no, I really don't think she meant him any harm of hurt. I think the theory of meaning to help him escape سے طرف کی causing chaos with دکھانا his face could work as an addition to my theory, but I personally don't think she was thinking of where they were because she'd been completely lost in her emotions about him for a long while سے طرف کی that point.
And she certainly didn't mean to hurt him. The latest emotion she seemed to have before the expression change, was clearly caring and touched. One doesn't just suddenly snap out of it completely and change her attitude into harmful means.
