4. Part 1 of Breaking Dawn

“Do you think Bella will be showing yet?”
“Jess, she is not pregnant.”
“Why else do girls get married?”
The first portion of the fourth novel, Breaking Dawn, is divided into 2 movies in the fourth episode in the series. The initial part commences with Bella and Edward’s wedding, just several months after the climax of the preceding chapter. Jacob shows up at Bella’s wedding, which is a lovely surprise until he finds Bella and Edward are intending to marry on their romantic getaway, prior to Bella’s metamorphosis – a move that might potentially kill her. It doesn’t, but Bella becomes impregnated with Edward’s vampire-hybrid kid, whom they name Renesmee and who develops at an alarming rate, putting Bella’s health at risk.
When Jacob learns that Bella is expecting and the werewolves are involved, he becomes enraged once more. After Bella almost passes during the birth, Edward is forced to turn her into something like a vampire. Jacob rushes in to murder the kid, but as soon as he locks eyes with her, he “imprints” on her, which really is similar to how a Quileute shape-shifter meets its soul mate.

Renesmee is now secure… from werewolves, at least, because Quileute rule prohibits hurting anybody who has been branded by a resident of the tribe. Not just from the Volturi, for whom the dramatic finale return is hinted at in the post-credits sequence of Breaking Dawn: Part 1.

They think she is an “Immortal Kid,” a human child who has been transformed into a vampire and has been trapped in that mental and physical state for all time. The Volturi have set out to destroy her because eternal offspring is a forbidden subject.
