there is also a Role Reversal that goes on. The backstory of Ilsa leaving Rick is that she was protecting him from being considered a conspirator.

these contridictions ask questions like, were they really in love?

End of Act one, she lets him go (train scene)
End of Act Three, he lets her go (plane scene)

His letter of transit was her leaving him.
But this wily god never discloses even to the skillful questioner the whole content of his wisdom.
