Don't let Rozema get ahold of THAT idea. *shudder* (-;
] She distracts Catherine from Elinor, when it is importaint for Catherine (for her own personal improvment and the improvment of her relationship with Henry) to become friends with Elinor. Both friends have things in common, they're both older and more experianced then Catherine. Both are beautiful and love to read novels, but Elinor is the true friend and the better person, and Catherine must find that out.
Actually not quite as wierd as you think. Isabella is showing no signs of playing the rival for Henry. While her eye may be wandering, it's shown no sign of wandering onto him as of yet. In the most of the other novels, the female anti-hero is actively vying for the affections of the hero. So IT's role is less easily compartmentalized into a cookie cutter pattern.
