MS is Anne's former governess, and Anne has not seen her in years. And Anne spouts off like this? Indiscreet! Imprudent! Why don't you just yell this from a roof top, Anne? Humiliate Mr. Eliot utterly. This scene, alone, allowed me to have pity for Mr. Eliot. MS is sure to blab, or her servant. To be turned down before one has proposed? Poor Mr. Eliot.
JA usually and mercilessly punishes her characters for their unworldliness. I can only attribute this loss of mind to A's hankering for FW -- which is something I've never been able to fathom.
