Stella is madly in love with Stanley. She wouldn't consider leaving him. In Scene One she tells Blanche, "I can hardly stand it when he is away for a night . . . " And then, "When he's away for a week I nearly go wild! . . . . And when he comes back I cry on his lap like a baby . . ." Besides this strong attachment to Stanley, which is of course partly sexual, Stella is now expecting a baby. There is never any real question of her leaving Stanley, although Blanche disapproves of him and tries very hard in Scene Four to get her to escape from him. When Blanche tells her, "You can get out," Stella replies emphatically, "I'm not in anything I want to get out of." Blanche is already an unwelcome guest in this two-room apartment. The coming baby is sure to make it impossible for her to stay.
