* RedheadedHeroine: She's a red-head and the focus of the series.

* TheUnfavorite: Especially in the novelization, it's clear that she's her father's least favorite daughter, though he loves her. By the end, though, he's begun taking steps to fix that, since her feeling so isolated in her own family is what caused so much of the trouble.



* ParentsAsPeople: Could he do more to reign in Lydia, and maybe get his wife off his daughters' backs? Yes. Should he be more involved in his daughters' lives, Lydia's in particular? Probably. But does he love them? ''Definitely''. And despite his general aloofness towards Lydia, he steps up to the plate when it ''really'' counts.



* TheStoic: He can't be bothered too much by all the drama, sometimes fake and sometimes real, created by his wife and his youngest daughter.

daughter. However, he's NotSoStoic when Lydia needs him.




to:

* ItsPronouncedTropay: Played with. Her name is pronounced "Muh-ree-uh," which is how most people would expect it to be pronounced, but in the original novel, it was pronounced "Muh-rye-uh."



* AdaptationalHeroism: This Mr. Collins is nowhere ''near'' as bad as the one from the novel. This one at least has good intentions.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's self-centered, rude, a KnowNothingKnowItAll, and he's prone to insensitive remarks. Despite this, he's not ''really'' a bad guy -- he does hold both Lizzie and Charlotte in genuine regard, his respect for his boss is entirely sincere, and he honestly doesn't seem to realize how rude he can be, and can even be kind of nice at times. Lizzie outright admits in the novelization that, while he's definitely still obnoxious, he's not so bad, deep down.




to:

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Just like the original. George is a ManipulativeBastard domestic abuser who previously used Gigi for her money and nearly sells a sex tape of Lydia against her will, in what is otherwise a fun, lighthearted romantic comedy about a DeadpanSnarker and her sisters.


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHerosim: This Catherine is condescending and rude, just like her book counterpart, but at least she never tries to break up Lizzie and Darcy. She doesn't appear as much, which helps.


Added DiffLines:

* RichBitch: She's ''marginally'' better than her book counterpart, since she's not actively malicious, but she definitely thinks she's better than Lizzie just because she's rich.


Added DiffLines:

* FunPersonified: He ''definitely'' knows how to have a good time and liven up a room. Lizzie outright says in the novelization that of ''course'' something was fun; Fitz was there!


Added DiffLines:

* PromotedToLoveInterest: Inverted; in the novel, he flirts with Elizabeth, though it's nothing at all serious. Here, they're totally platonic -- enforced by the fact that Fitz is gay.

%%* SugarAndIcePersonality: Mostly demonstrated by her treatment of her sisters. %%% How?

to:

%%* * SugarAndIcePersonality: Mostly demonstrated by her treatment of her sisters. %%% How?sisters and Darcy. She can be cold and even sort of mean to Lydia (when she's frustrated with her) and Darcy (at first), and anyone she considers to be rude, arrogant or stupid. But prove yourself a true friend and get on Lizzie's good side, and you'll get to meet the wonderfully kind person she really is.



%%* UnfazedEveryman

to:

%%* UnfazedEveryman* UnfazedEveryman: It really takes a lot to shock her, given everything she and Lizzie deal with on a daily basis.



%%* ThePollyanna

to:

%%* ThePollyanna* ThePollyanna: Jane always tries to see the good in everyone and everything. She becomes less overly-cheery over time, but she never loses her optimism.



* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted. The novelization makes it clear she's in counselling and likely will be for a long while after what Wickham did to her, and also that counselling is doing her good.



* PapaWolf: It's seen more in the novelization, but when he finds out about the sex tape, he ''immediately'' does everything in his (albiet limited) power to stop it, determined to protect Lydia. After it's all over, he insists she goes to therapy.



%%* TheComicallySerious

to:

%%* TheComicallySerious* TheComicallySerious: Part of what makes him so damn funny is how utterly ''un''funny Darcy is. See Lizzie's stonefaced imitation of him against Lydia!Bing for the first instance of this.



%%* DeadpanSnarker

to:

%%* DeadpanSnarker* DeadpanSnarker: He's rather snide and sarcastic. He's mean about it at times, but over the course of the series it becomes more playful and lighthearted. He can also get in a crack at his own expense from time to time, which helps.



* HotGuysAreBastards: Insanely attractive and the most blatant MrFanservice here... and an utter asshole.

to:

\n* TermsOfEndangerment: He calls any woman he's flirting with "peach," which comes off as cute and harmless at first, but then you see him call Lydia that when he's emotionally abusing her... and in the Domino side videos, he ''still'' calls Gigi that, even after what he did to her. ''Ick''.

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization tells us that her first name is Marilyn, and also gives her a little more development, showing she does have good reason to be worried about her daughters' financial future -- even if she does go about it ''totally'' wrong.

* DisappearedDad: She lives alone with her mother in a tiny apartment. No father of Mary is ever mentioned.
** She does sometimes refer to "parents" plural, and at one point in Lizzie's videos an uncle is mentioned along with Mary and an aunt, so it's possible that the part about her living with her mother was a mistake or a exaggeration. ([[TakeAThirdOption Or]], Mary's father (who is presumably Mr. Bennet's brother given Mary's last name) just doesn't live with them.)

* StepfordSmiler: She tries to set up her daughters with virtually anyone. She considers them to be worthless [[OldMaid Old Maids]]to be, at least according to Lizzie's portrayal. She also covers the hinted-at financial issues of the Bennet family with forced smiles and fake happiness.
