     Horrible thought:  might Ges have *set up* Aral's wife in order to 
break up her and Aral?  Oh, I doubt he expected her to *kill* herself, 
but Ges has a lot of "jealous/jilted lover" in his behavior regarding 
Aral.  "Punishing" Aral while also giving him an excuse to fall back 
into Ges's arms would seem a very Ges-like thing to do.
