I waited for an hour, but then she finally showed up (when I was about to give up), so I decided to forgive her because she did show up after all.Can we say the following?
(1) I waited for her for an hour, and then, after all, she showed up.
(2) I waited for her for an hour, but after all she didn't show up.
Ohoh, this is getting trickier by the secondHi,
I assumed that casino wanted to mean ''I waited for her for an hour, but in the end she didn't show up.'' If so, using after all in this context seems inappropriate to me.
Corrected me please, thanks.
