in consequence of the missive, Fitzwilliam inspiring jealousy?, penned by Allison Jo
I think Darcy probably is jealous that Fitzwilliam can converse so easily with Lizzy when he has very little sucess himself. But given he knows his cousin's financial situation, he knows the Col. cannot afford to marry her, so the only impact it could have on Darcy is in seeing the lady of his interest apreciated by someone of good judgement. As it is not her character that he objects to, this probably would not have spurred him on.
] Also, do you think, if he had been financially independent, Col. Fitzwilliam would have made an offer to Lizzy? He doesn't seem to mind her low connections. Would she have accepted?
I think in chapter 33 he's trying to tell her he would have.
