This scene is one of the ones which stays in my memory each time I read NA: I take delight in hating Thorpe for deceiving Catherine and can feel for Catherine here as she desperately attempts to set things right between her and the Tilneys.

She is strong enough to stand up for herself (she is "determined to persevere"), although still quite naive, and her backbone is developing.
