Quote #1

[Emmett to Edward:] "Let me dance with my little sister. This could be my last chance to make her blush." (4.236)

Emmett refers to Bella's human ability to blush – one thing Edward always loved about her. Her new body will no longer be affected by her emotions.

Quote #2

[Bella:] In Jacob's eyes – by choosing Edward, I was choosing a fate that was worse than death, or at least, equivalent to it. (4.148)

Until Bella actually becomes a vampire, Jacob is convinced that her transformation will be like she died. What makes him change his mind?

Quote #3

[Jacob:] The bonds fell off my body the second I embraced my birthright. (11.29)

The moment Jacob acknowledges the innate leader in him, he becomes immune to Sam's power. Does this moment feel believable, or a bit too easy?
