Oh, Leah. Leah is easily my favorite character in the entire series. She lost so much, and yet manages to remain strong.
I noticed people dislike her for making life difficult for the pack, but I think for a lot of it Sam was not helping. In Breaking Dawn does he not have another member come plead with her? Does he not use his former relationship with her as a wedge to try to lure her back to his pack? Having him call her "Lee-Lee" and taking advantage of how she feels/felt for him? To me that shows Sam wasn't above using his previous relationship with her in a negative way, and I think there was a lot more to Leah being a "harpy" than was stated, and it's unfair to blame her for being antagonizing, especially if she constantly had to be reminded of such things with Sam, and the pack never seemed to really try to befriend her. Obviously they were all dedicated to Sam, so where did that leave Leah? Forced to follow the man who broke her heart, in a pack of men who were bound to him just as much as she was, which really probably prevented her from having someone to confide in. Who else could she turn to, after all? It's not like she could tell her friends, and I doubt she would want to turn to one of the other woman who were in on the werewolf secret because, presumably, they are the woman who the others in the pack have imprinted on.
There was also a note previously on imprinting, and I for one hope she doesn't. I think she's such a strong character, it would belittle her independence and would almost be the easy way out for her. Yes, it would heal her heartbreak, but it would be an almost artificial healing. I think she needs to find closure and happiness for herself, and imprinting would just... wreck that.
