: I see Magua's reaction as one where she is going against his
: psychological profile of her. She is showing some "backbone",
: something which Indian's admired in their captives and which up
: until then Alice had very little of. He was very concerned with
: honor. His posession of her increased his, and her taking her own
: life, taking back her control from him, increased hers. I saw a
: fleeting moment of puzzlement, then a glimpse of respect. She beat
: him at his own game. Then I saw his reaction afterwards as, "Well,
: she did it! I didn't think she had it in her."
Victoria, I think you hit the nail on the head,.That is pretty much what I see, only I think his intentions where to do away with her as he left the Huron village .
