BD Chapter 17. What do I Look Like? The Wizard of Oz?

What do I Look Like? The Wizard of Oz? You Need a Brain? You Need a Heart? Go Ahead. Take Mine. Take Everything I Have.

Key Plot Points from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide
  • Jacob races away toward Seattle
    Jacob hope he can imprint on someone so he won't hurt over Bella anymore; he compares everyone to Bella; he goes back to be with her
  • Edward tells Jacob they want to deliver the baby early -- tomorrow
  • Edward asks Jacob, the true Alpha, to grant him permission to save Bella
    In anguish, Jacob consents
  • Bella bends and there is a ripping sound followed by a shriek of pain
This chapter is absolutely heartbreaking as we watch Jacob try to force himself to find a relief from his pain by imprinting. Edward's gesture in giving him the car, the escape he needs, is quite gracious. But of course, Edward knows there is something he's going to have to ask Jacob for...permission to change Bella.

Jacob just has to keep giving and giving. He's losing Bella now. At this part in the story I was pretty darn convinced that Jacob was going to end up with Leah. She's become someone different away from the constant pain of Sam's presence.
