A Separate Peace

Why do you think Gene jounced the limb?

Was his action premeditated? What were his thoughts about himself and Finny just prior to the jump? Gene jumps from the limb for the first time without fear, why?

Gene was jealous of Finny, pure and simple. He didn't mean to hurt him the way he did, but he didn't trust Finny's friendship, and he wrongly attributed his own negative feelings and behaviors on his friend.
