1. There are four conflicts in this chapter: Bella's internal conflict, Jacob's internal conflict, the conflict between Bella and Jacob and the conflict between Jacob and Alice. How are these conflicts resolved? How are they left unresolved?
Bella's is solved pretty easily; she makes her decision and sticks to it, as always. She decides to warn Jake and plead with him to stop killing people - and it turns out he wasn't in the first place, so that's solved quickly. The unsolved part is her split loyalty - spill vampires secrets to help herself and Charlie and the wolves, and be loyal to Jacob; or keep them and stay loyal to the Cullens? I guess she doesn't see the point in keeping secrets that Jacob pretty much knows, when keeping them could cause harm to Charlie and herself and a whole bunch of innocent strangers.
Jacob's is solved when he realises Bella doesn't care about him being a werewolf - nothing does seem to be able to keep Jacob down at this point.
Bella and Jacob get over their arguments quickly; she realises he literally couldn't tell her anything sooner, and forgives him; he realises she doesn't care what he is, and gets over his own anger. Problems solved.
I don't know that there's any conflict between Jacob and Alice... That's not until later on.
2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?
A whole range: for Bella, disbelief (more mythical creatures?) solved when she learns to accept it, anger at Jacob insulting the Cullens, unease at being disloyal to the Cullens, and sheer terror over Victoria; for Jacob, fear and anger that Bella won't want him anymore, and that he's something he didn't want to be, and then joy and relief that she does want to stay with him, and that he knows a bit more information on the threats bugging them.
3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others' thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share their thoughts. When there are in wolf form. Since the pack members don't choose each other, some of them haven't been close, yet now they are sharing thoughts. How do you think that feels for Jacob and the other wolves?
Awkward and annoying as hell, probably. Every single thought you think - bitchy thoughts about the pack, private thoughts about people you love, even nerdy things you might watch on TV that would be way to embarrassing to admit... All out there for four other boys to see. Don't think I'd like that much.
4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?
I imagine it would be anyway, regardless of pain - randomly morphing into a giant, horse-sized doggy wolf? When you didn't believe the stories you were told and a few minutes ago you were just hanging out with friends at the movies? Your entire body transforming into an animal, and hearing four other voices of people you didn't even like in your head trying to keep you sane, seemingly understanding it all when you sure as hell don't... I'd be terrified, too.
