I find it interesting that Lyra/Dante would tell Rose that she and Ed love each other. Would it have made any more sense to turn Rose against Ed? Did Dante honestly think that Ed would go along with her body-changing scheme?
I'm guessing Dante was working on assumptions here. She probably didn't know that Ed already knew her secret (because she has deceived older, wiser people). Plus, she probably didn't know too much about how Ed and Rose met and how their meeting turned out, so once again, she assumed that Rose harbored feelings for Ed, and brainwashed her this way.
Then again, it would probably be easier to convince Rose that she loves Ed than to convince her to hate him. Plus, I don't see Rose as someone who would actually hate someone else.
