yea you both have a point ^_^ When leah finnaly imprints, she'll move on. Though im sure that, like Sam, she won't completly forgett him or the way she felt for him. But i bet that once she imprints, she'll understand why Sam chose Emily over her.

And yes, i guess that even if it were a total random guy, if he loves me with such passion i guess i'll fall for him eventually :)

Good point. I think Sam experienced a physical as well as mental "aha" moment when he saw Emily. He quite literally changed from his former self--in religious terminology, you could say he was born again! (I'm not equating imprinting with a religious experience, so don't stone me!)

Personally, I think people take the Leah/Sam relationship too seriously. I mean, how many people do you know that met and dated when the girl was a Freshman--fourteen years old--and were still together when she graduated? I'd be surprised if anyone knew of such a case. Emily's coming was obviously a nasty shock, and I'm sorry Leah got dumped so unceremoniously, but I'd be willing to bet that Sam and Leah would have eventually broken up anyway.

There's also a sort of assumption on the boards that Leah will eventually imprint. I'll be very surprised if that happens. A little too pat for Stephenie, don't you think? Almost a cop out.

Well, i dont think that SM will pay much attention to Leah imprinting. Maybe she'll mention it, like she did w/ Quil & Paul, but i don't think it will be that relevant. But i do believe she will imprint in BD, i mean don't all werewolves imprint sometime?? (that's not an indirect question, can somebody please answer it ? lol)

No. Not all werewolves imprint. The pack was surprised that more imprinted after Sam. They were shocked when Quill imprinted. I'll be amazed if any other werewolf imprints.

All the imprints so far have been between Native American characters. Even if imprinting occurs again, I think it will have to be between Native Americans. I could be wrong, but that's what the pattern has been thus far.

Thanks for clearing that up ^^ But im not sure, i dont think there are limitations where the person they imprint has to be Native American. I don't know either. lol maybe someone should ask SM :P

<center> I can't help but kind of dislike Emily even though I understand that her love for Sam was out of her control
<center>You just betrayed your cousin who was like your sister...
<center>Then again, I also think Emily's really patient with Leah
<center>I guess sometimes she probably just wants to scream
<center> GET OVER IT

<center> I think the whole situation must be very complicated, and impossible to completely understand unless you're as in love as Sam and Emily are.

Some people think Emily was mean and cold-hearted by asking Leah to be a bridesmaid at her and Sam's wedding. I disagree. I don't think she asked; I think Leah and Emily tried to repair their relationship, and it was a gesture of reconciliation that Leah made.

I don't remember Stephenie giving us any Leah/Emily scenes in the book. I'm not convinced their relationship is irreparably ruined. Obviously, Leah is still suffering, but I don't think she's specifically mad at Emily for the twist fate threw at her.

Hey, I could be wrong. But Jacob said Leah was putting a good face on it, which indicates to me that Emily and Leah, who were like sisters before, were still close.

But not as close. How could they be?

I don't think Emily was being mean asking Leah to be bridesmaid - she still feels the same way about Leah... it's Leah who feels differently.

Very good points. When I know I've unintentionally hurt someone it puts a damper on the relationship--even when I know the hurt wasn't intended. But Leah must have seen Emily reject Sam in the beginning, and known Emily wasn't out to steal her guy.

Gosh, it just occurred to me: Emily might not have been a stranger to Sam. If Emily and Leah were like sisters, they must have been together a lot as they grew up. So Sam must have seen them together during high school--before the werewolf gene kicked in. Sam's attitude towards Emily must have been similar to Paul's attitude towards Kim: he never really paid attention to her until the first time he saw he after his transformation.

Well, back to Leah and Emily ... the Sam conflict will stay between them until Leah completely heals. With Leah stuck on the reservation and in the wolf pack, totally unable to distance herself from the source of her pain, that might take a while.
