Crime of Passion
Everyone agrees that there were arguments going on during the yachting weekend. There is also agreement about who was doing the arguing. It was either Natalie arguing with Wagner or Wagner arguing with Walken. Natalie never argued with Walken. She was always charming to him. What they cannot agree upon is about the topics being argued. Irony also intruded. Walken had to absent himself a lot and go lie down in his room. This is because it turns out he was prone to seasickness.
Wagner initially said that all arguments were about politics. That was not convincing so he was forced to amplify. Next, was that they’d been arguing over Natalie’s future role. Walken felt Natalie should give her career a big push. Wagner wanted her at home more with him and their children. As that one escalated, Walken said that another person should not get between a man’s argument with his wife. He then shut up about Natalie’s future role and would not resume discussing it.
Walken and Wagner were also forced to spend a night alone on the boat together when Wood went to the hotel. Wagner tried to say this occurred because there were rough seas. Both Walken and the captain indicated the Wagners were arguing but they didn’t overhear the actual argument. Walken was seasick yet again and laying down in his cabin.
The last argument is not agreed to by all parties who were present (not long before Natalie disappeared). This was about Natalie’s flirting with Walken and Walken’s perhaps following through with a sexual interest in Natalie. Wagner got so incensed that he broke a wine bottle and screamed at Walken, "What do you want to do, f**k my wife? Is that what you want?” Walken shut down the conversation at this point and retreated. The captain says this all happened. Walken’s version is closer to the captain’s than to Wagner’s. Wagner denies most of it.
