02. Jacob declares war on the Cullens
03. Jacob finds out that Bella is pregnant
04. Jacob breaks away from Sam’s pack in order to protect Bella and the Cullens
No, I told him again.
He heard it right away, heard the choice that I’d made in the sound of the Alpha voice in my thoughts.

Jacob? What have you done?
05. Jacob becomes Alpha with Seth and Leah in tow
06. Jacob escapes in Edward’s car to get away from the Bella and Edward love
07. Jacob tries to force himself to imprint on random girls
Either way, nothing. Even when I met the eyes of the girl who was—-no contest—the hottest girl in the park and probably in the city, and she stared right back with a speculation that looked like interest, I felt nothing. Just the same desperate drive to find a way out of the pain.

15. Jacob warns his pack to be ready
16. Jacob listens as Edward reveal Renesmee to the Denali Coven
17. Jacob watches as more and more vampires appear

18. Jacob watches as Bella learns how to defend herself and control her ability

23. Jacob is shocked when Bella gives him Renesmee and is told to run
24. Jacob is angered when the Volturi try to vote against them.
“The child is an unknown quantity. There is no reason to allow such a risk to exist. It must be destroyed, along with all who protect it”
