I'm a bit late in posting this, but I just wanted to talk about the relationship between Darcy and Bingley as portrayed at the end of the book. In ch.58. Darcy had just been telling Elizabeth about the way he confirmed to Bingley that Jane loved him, and that he "felt no doubt of their happiness together". The ON comments "Elizabeth could not help smiling at his easy manner of directing his friend." He's still doing it (though obviously in a positive way this time), but doesn't realize it. I like the way Elizabeth stops herself from teasing him about it, because "he had yet to learn to be laught at, and it was rather too early to begin". She knows he's going to have to stop stage-managing the lives of those around him, but she also knows when it would be appropriate to make a joke, and when it would be counter-productive. (Personally, I think those two will do very well together! ;-)
