Life sucks, and then you die.Key Plot Point from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide
Yeah, I should be so lucky.
- Paul has imprinted on Jacob's sister Rachel, and no one is pleased; Paul is annoying everyone
- Jacob is waiting to hear about Bella
Jacob spends an afternoon with Quil and Claire
- Sam calls a meeting of the pack; Edward and Bella have returned
Jacob feels the treaty has been broken and the wolves should attack; Sam declares that the Cullens are not a danger
Jacob is waiting to hear that Bella is gone. I find it interesting that while he is trying to figure out how the story will go, he thinks that she could lose her life in Edward's quest for his own pleasure. He mentions knowing Edward, but after their time in the tent, you'd think he'd realize there is nothing in the world that Edward would put before Bella's life, most especially his own pleasure. Never entered his mind that Bella was the one pushing for the "real" honeymoon.
Bella and Edward are home, but they're not just now getting there. They've been there for a while and they've told Charlie that Bella picked up a disease in South America and must be quarantined. Sam's decided whether this means that she's already been changed or not, the spirit of the treaty stands and the pack will not attack. Jacob shifts back to his human form so no one else can hear his decision to act alone.
Were you surprised by Sam's decision? Jacob's willingness to take on the Cullens on his own? I loved that he was asked just what he planned to do if Bella fought with them.
Instead of giving you the Twilight Lexicon chapter summary link in each discussion post, I'm going to go back and add them to the schedule post. Just makes it a tiny bit quicker for me.
I hope you're enjoying these discussions. We should be completely back on track very soon.
