She agrees to rescue him, which she feels be ultimately saving herself.

Does it mean "She agrees to rescue him, and she feels that saving him is eventually saving herself"? I don't understand how "feels be" is grammatically correct.

It's awkward phrasing, but consider it to be an elliptical form of this (still awkward) sentence:

She agrees to rescue him, which she feels [to] be ultimately saving herself.

Alternatively, it could be rephrased as follows:

She agrees to rescue him, which she feels would ultimately save herself.

  • Can it be: She agrees to rescue him, which she feels it turns out to be ultimately saving herself.

  • @dan That sound correct to me. Although, also not an entirely natural phrasing. Mar 1, 2019 at 14:23
