Things Are Coming to a Head
14 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Tulkinghorn is overplaying his hand it would seem. For one thing, his treatment of Lady Dedlock is becoming less powerful because of her desperation. There are signs here that he is starting to put himself in danger. Her loyalty to her old man husband who is not much of a prince was never an issue. If she goes down and takes him with her, she wouldn't be the worse for wear. Also, there is that French woman who was made promises. She doesn't back down. And then there is the Captain who is told in this episode that his debts have been called in. And our wonderful Mr. Jarndyce finally gets the courage to ask Esther to marry him and immediately regrets doing it. There are all kinds of possibilities and I can't wait.
