3. What is the simple subject of the following sentence?

Then, glancing upward at Lady Weathers's face, he saw a look of consternation.

A. he
B. Lady Weathers's
C. consternation
D. face

I picked a, because he is the subject, saw is the verb and Lady Weathers face is the object. This sentence has two clauses: Then glancing upward at Lady Weathers face. He saw a look of consternation. If you combine into a subordinate clause, one of the subjects is eliminated and becomes tacit, while the other remains intact, so your simple subject is he. Is this correct or am I way off in my thinking?
