Sorry, partial bulls..t :) the escape behaves as a metachar only

       Enclosing characters in double quotes preserves  the  lit­
       eral  value  of all characters within the quotes, with the
       exception of $, `, and \.  The characters $ and  `  retain
       their special meaning within double quotes.  The backslash
       retains its special meaning only when followed by  one  of
       the  following  characters:  $,  `, ", \, or <newline>.  A
       double quote may be quoted within double quotes by preced­
       ing it with a backslash.
