So Are We All Just Supposed To Be Okay With That Jacob And Renesemee Twist In "Twilight?"

Yes, it's been almost 10 years. Yes, I'm still worked up.

So recently I've been rewatching the Twilight movies. I've always been Team Jacob (sorry, Edward!), so I was pretty upset with how the love triangle ended.

Listen, I know he's trash, but he's MY trash.

But the part that bothers me isn't that Bella ends up with Edward. It's the fact that Jacob basically ends up with Bella's newborn daughter.

Jacob imprints on Bella and Edward's weird vampire-human-whatever baby Renesmee in Breaking Dawn. Yeah, he imprints. That involuntary thing werewolves do when they find their soulmate.

Jacob. Imprinted. On. A. Fucking. BABY.

So first off, can we just acknowledge how CREEPY this is??! Yeah, Renesmee ages really quickly (because of hybrid baby rules or whatever), but she's still a CHILD. Even if Jacob starts off having a "big brother" relationship with her, it doesn't make it any less weird. If anything, that makes it WEIRDER.

As if this wasn't bad enough, Jacob tells Bella that he was never actually in love with her — he was just attracted to Bella because of her eggs. Because of some tiny half-embryo that was apparently calling out to him from Bella's womb?!

I have SO MANY questions. What would have happened if Bella had another baby instead of Renesmee? Would Jacob have just stopped being attracted to Bella if she'd had a period instead of getting pregnant? And does this mean Jacob was attracted to Edward too?!

You're telling me all this sexual tension was because of some unfertilized egg?

Summit Entertainment

This was because of Renesmee too????

Look, I'm sorry, but this whole plot twist is just fucking WEIRD. And I will die on that hill.
