I suspect that if Aro reads a werewolf that's in werewolf form, he also reads all of the other werewolves that they are involuntarily connected to.

No. Aro only reads the personal history of the individual he touches. This includes (their memories of) telepathic conversations where applicable, but not the other memories of packmates. Also, wolves don't have perfect recall. Their memories are humanlike.

Ah, I was thinking that Aro would hijack the involuntary telepathic communication to read the remote wolves as well.

So we're back to it depending wholly on Jake's thoughts, which is why I thought he should phase back very quickly, but I suppose that might interfere with the healing process--diluting what venom is still in his system with a much larger body seems like it would increase his chances of survival, as well.
