Key Plot Points from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide
- Jacob and Bella speak privately
Bella believes Jacob will imprint on someone and everything will make sense; Bella doesn't expect to survive as a human; Bella understands what Edward has sent Jacob to offer, and won't consider it; Jacob feels an addiction to be with Bella, but he wants to leave
- The pack decides the risk of this new creature is too great -- they will attack the Cullens
Sam plans their strategy and uses the Alpha voice to ensure obedience
Since near the end of Eclipse, there has been little casual conversation between Jacob and Bella. If they're talking, it's a heavy thing. Their conversation in Jacob's room after they battled the newborns, their dance at the wedding and now this. Jacob knows that Bella isn't going to listen to him, but he tries anyway. He tries because as much as he wishes he didn't, he still loves her.
There's another change for Jacob in this chapter. He realizes, or at least admits to himself for the first time, that Bella becoming a vampire isn't his greatest fear. Her death would be so much worse. I really feel for him here because, and this time at Edward's urging, he offers himself up and faces Bella's rejection again.
He really does have the best chapter titles, don't you think?
