also one of the novel’s most incredible and typically forgotten moments is definitely when Mr Rochester dresses up like an old gipsy woman and then comes in to read all the young ladies’ fortunes, and they inexplicably don’t recognize him, and he brings Jane in last, and is like, “have you been paying attention… to any man… IN PARTICULAR?????” and she’s like, “no.” “NOBODY??? NO MAN AND WOMAN ESPECIALLY????” “nope,” Jane says. “Mr Rochester’s going to marry Blanche Ingram btw,” he says, and Jane’s like, “yeah I know,” and he’s like, “NO REACTION? YOU HAVE NO REACTION???” and she’s like, are you going to tell my fortune or what?
and then finally he takes off his disguise and is all “wasn’t I impressive, Jane, wasn’t my disguise good, Jane, sit and talk to me, Jane, lavish me with attention, Jane,” until unfortunately somebody comes by and reminds him that he’s already married.
