Summary

Several times, when Elizabeth takes her favorite walk, she encounters Darcy. The conversations are somewhat awkward. Another time, while she is walking, she encounters the Colonel. In the course of conversation, he describes what a good friend Darcy is to Bingley. He tells her about Darcy's role in preventing what she surmises to be an engagement between Bingley and Jane. Elizabeth realizes that Darcy is the cause of her sister's unhappiness. She is upset and angered and pleads a headache so she does not have to socialize that night.

Analysis

She is angry at Darcy for his role in Bingley's disaffection from Jane. Her agitation contributes to an emotionally fraught atmosphere, making the reader anxious to find out what will happen next.
