I think Vassily is also important because he shows Ekaterin what blind devotion to duty does. One is 
twisted away from important principles just for the sake of "duty" (as defined by whom?? His Count?), 
and while one is not always made particularly happy, one can cause a lot of suffering, too. Duty to 
one's "superiors" vs. duty to one's heart? Hmmm.
