“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
There was a measure of this in the original books -- e. This is really about Anne insisting on being family. I also liked the more sympathetic side of Mrs. Lynde this time around. Diana is still just kinda there, but I imagine that'll change as we move past the initial drama of Anne's move to Green Gables and into Anne's social life in the community. I do like that, even when this is clearly a much more dramatic take on the premise than is often the case, they don't downplay Anne's grandiose sense of humour, as with the final scene. The sadder parts lend these moments a bit of a different feel, but they're there.

Do you think I am an automaton? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh;--it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal,--as we are! Rochester--"so," he added, enclosing me in his arms. Gathering me to his breast, pressing his lips on my lips: "so, Jane!
