] Sherry, does the narrator have to hand us everything on a silver platter? ;-p
Noooo.....but I like what is supposed to be obvious in a story to be obvious. In the end when Knightly is trying to tell Emma he loves her and she stops him ungraciously, she still isn't aware of his feelings for her and if we are supposed to be amused or entertained by this then it would have made it all the more believable if Knightly had shown her in subtle but very clear ways that he cared. ALA Darcy in P&P. Managing to bump into Lizzie on her walks, staring at her,overlistening her conversations ect. There is too little of this on Knightly's part in Emma and that is what bugs me.
My first reply to this was lost in the ether somewhere but this is the jist of it. If it turns up disregard either one.(or both if you want :-)
