SCOD: “Westu Aragorn hál!” Can't Post

Mae Govannen, my friends, to another Screencap Of The Day.
Here is the image;

This picture is when Éowyn gives Aragorn the chalice of wine in Edoras.

You can find the full-sized image here.

As always, feel free to answer any, some, or all the questions.

1) What do you think of the overall layout of this image?

2) Do you think the film makers are trying to convey the idea of a union between Rohan and Gondor? How well do you think they achieved this?

3) Éowyn is obviously in love with Aragorn, and I think in this scene, when he walks away from her, it is in the back of his mind that he has yet to tell her he loves Arwen.
a] Why do you think that Aragorn has not told her anything except when she asked him about the Evenstar [in The Two Towers]?
b] Do you think Aragorn is considering the possibility of Éowyn instead of Arwen, since he [and the audience] know Arwen is making her way to the Havens?

4) Do you think they would make a nice couple?

5) Any other thoughts/comments?

Bonus Question: For those who have seen The Two Towers Extended Edition version, we have seen Éowyn offer Aragorn the stew she made (which he did not like, but told her it tasted alright so that he was not hurting her feelings).
Every time I see her approach Aragorn with the goblet of wine, I keep wondering whether in the back of his mind Aragorn was thinking “Oh no, what has she got this time? Whatever it is, I hope it doesn’t taste like that stew she made!”
Can you relate these two scenes to each other?

......A Willing Heart.
