Very Intense

The plot moves along. Esther is pretty much an observer and a commentator. Mr. Guppy has fallen in love with her at first sight and is really sort of stalking her. The main issue in this episode is Mr. Tulkington, the villain, looking into the connection between Lady Dedlock and Nemo. Lady Dedlock obviously had a relationship with Nemo at a better time. Richard Carstone is a dense young man who is headed off to the medical profession because others think he should. We are also getting to know Woodcourt and Krook. There is a lot of evil in addition to the whole chancery thing.
