Storyline

Richard and Ada want to become engaged but Mr. Jarndyce advises that they wait a time before making a firm commitment. Esther's friend Caddy Jellyby excitedly tells her that she's become engaged to her dance and deportment instructor, Prince Turveydrop. Tulkinghorn makes it clear that his first loyalties are to her husband. Although Lady Dedlock professes no further interest in Nemo, Tulkinghorn senses there is more interest than she professes. Mr. Guppy's infatuation with Esther continues but she again pushes him away. Esther is saddened to hear that Mr. Woodcourt has become a naval medical officer and will soon be going to sea. Richard isn't taking his medical studies seriously and Mr. Badger thinks him ill-suited for the profession. Richard agrees and expresses an interest in the law. Written by garykmcd

Lady Dedlock Seeks Information
13 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

At the Jardyce home, Bleak House, the young people are creating a path. The young man has been training with a windbag physician but realizes quickly his heart is not in it. He becomes intrigued by the law. Miss Sommerson is still having to deal with Guppy. But most significantly, Lady Dedlock goes out in search of information about the man calling himself Nemo. The world certainly is a harsh one.
