In truth, the little Puritans—some of the least tolerant children who ever lived—had gotten a vague idea that there was something bizarre and unnatural about this mother and child.
The reflection of the armor finally makes her realize that the scarlet letter is really what scares people away from her. At home, Pearl did not need a wide and varied circle of friends. I can focus on finishing up those last final details now.
I think that her reflection being shown in the brook is a metaphor for how Pearl divides and yet connects Hester forest and Dimmesdale society.
She was almost unnaturally active, jumping up and dancing about, then sinking down, exhausted by such rapid, fevered imaginings until others took their place. It appalled her, nevertheless, to discern here, again, a shadowy reflection of the evil that Hester reflection existed in herself.

She is an "angel of judgement," an "infant pestilence. She is constant motion with "rich and luxuriant beauty. Pearl becomes quiet out of curiosity about the men who are coming down the path.
