Camille Timeline and Summary

  • Camille has been sleeping with Dean while he’s sort of with his first wife.
  • She is seen (while a little naked) by Sal for the first time.
  • After Dean leaves her for the East, she calls him.
  • She takes Dean in (and Sal) in San Francisco.
  • Although Dean is running around with Marylou, she still loves him.
  • She freaks out when Sal shows up again because she doesn’t want Dean to go off on another trip.
  • She’s also pregnant with Dean’s second child.
  • She has had enough; she throws Dean and Sal out of her house.
  • Much later, she talks on the phone with Inez about Dean.
