Storyline

Esther keeps her secret refusing to tell Ada what happened with Lady Dedlock. Richard Carstone returns and admits he is unsettled by the never ending court case. Richard has decided to rely on Mr. Skimpole's advice and seek his own legal counsel in the form of Mr. Vholes, but expenses prove quite high. Ada thinks he should give up any hope of winning and they should just be happy. Smallweed finds the packet of letters addressed to Capt. Hawdon. Tulkinghorn buys them from him and subtly lets Lady Dedlock know he is aware of her secret. Jarndyce confides in Boythorm telling him of his plan to marry Esther. Written by garykmcd

Where Is This All Going
14 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Richard is such a stupid young man. He never knowns which side his bread is buttered. He is like Scrooge in that he has allowed the promise of money to take away everything. When John Jarndyce told him about decades of pain from the disposition of the money, he gets his back up. He is ripe for the picking and Mr. Vholes and Skimpole are ready to pick. iAlso, Ada has been true to him and we see the deterioration of the relationship. But mostly, we have our boy Tulkinghorn going after Lady Dedlock with some grand plan in mind. But something tells me that she has more in her quiver than a single arrow.
