] But I can't just blow off JA's ending. I'm sorry. I do think you may be right about the ending. It's almost as if she was having fun developing Henry and having Fanny flirt with the idea of accepting him, then had to hurryupandmakehimbad.
Actually, I think she meant for him to be bad all along. It seems to me that she was trying to see how many people she could fool into thinking Henry had reformed before showing once and for all that he really hadn't.
Henry=temptation. It looks reaaaalllly good sometimes, even when it really isn't. Fanny stuck to what she knew and was proved right in the long run. Good for her!
