Exactly. I'm not a BIG Edward fan, but I liked Robert's performance. However, if they put more of him in just to appease the supposed fans they might lose, it TOTALLY takes away from the devestation that Bella feels. It's not that Edward goes away for just a while -- he leaves
her. He takes every part that reminds her of him and just LEAVES. And she's completely lost without him, so she starts doing the stupidest
things just to hear his voice. He's not actually talking to her; he doesn't know
what's going on. But then Alice sees Bella jumping, he finds out, and he
loses it. For over a hundered years he's never been in love, but then he meets this fragile human girl that's stronger than she looks but still
so breakable. And he loves her completely. But he's afraid what he'll do, so he leaves her in hopes that it saves
her. But it doesn't. At least, he doesn't THINK it helps. So because he's just so wrought with despair, he tries to end his life, and Bella just HAS to get there. And there's SO MUCH PASSION to it... It's all the more better because
he's not there. It's deeper
. And granted, I hated Edward for being so emo and I hated Bella for being so co-dependent, but it's going to be completely lost if they just give him more air time.
Plus, I want all the Jacob I can get.
They shouldn't be worried about keeping the movie interesting. Kristen can DEFINITELY support a movie, and I have faith that Taylor can, too. As somebody put it (loosely), "If he couldn't hold a movie, there wouldn't have been such a FREAK OUT when he was about to be replaced."
And I know you all know what happens, so you were probably wondering why I was preaching to the choir, but ugh... It's not that I dislike Robert at all or that I dislike Edward so much that I just want him off the screen. It's just that the suspense is PART of what makes their reunion so powerful. *sobs* I don't want to start another campaign.
