] MP had you going the whole ride, it kept evolving and bettering itself with every chapter making you fall under the spell of the romantic Henry. THEN!!!!!.......BOOM!!! Evolution went zooming back to the Henry of the beginning of the book. Why have a character make a full circle like that? Henry had the making of a wonderful new Darcy-like character, but it was killed in the last forty pages.
Actually, I think JA's whole point was to show that no matter how charming Henry could be, he had not changed essentially from the beginnng of the book. His lack of principles and strength of will shone through to the end.
