] Though I hadnít thought of this line as being meant in that way before, it would not surprise me if Isabella had turned her eyes toward Capt. Tilney. She is obviously unhappy with the income James will receive, Iím sure she knows how wealthy the Tilneys are. She is someone who is always looking for the main chance, and I am not surprised that she is hedging her bets with the Capt.
He has a Y chromosome and he's interested in Isabella.
Isabella is certainly interested in establishing herself in the best way possible finacially, but honestly I think she'd flirt with a street sweeper if he paid her any attention.
What I'm having trouble figuring out is why she is flirting so openly around Catherine? Either she thinks Catherine is so dense that she won't notice, or she wants this news to get back to JM. Since I don't think JM would be allowed to break off the engagement, he probably would have to fight a duel with the Capt. Is this what IT is angling for?
Catherine is such a dear that she realizes the Capt. is flirting but thinks it all must be one-sided. She can't seem to think ill of IT. I think Henry needs to get busy and marry Catherine before she gets hurt. :)
