Austin paints Mr. Darcy as a character that is more complex than the other suitors in the book. Although one might dismiss him as rather pompous self-obsessed, Darcy is actually learning through his observations of people and Elizabeth. Was Mr. Darcy finally appreciating Elizabeth as a potential soul mate? I think he was always smitten with Elizabeth and behind his expressions of disdain, he was actually realizing how lucky he could be.
