Art Expectations 208 As You’re Told

{Page 226} Back at the station, waiting for Estella’s arrival, Pip begins to wonder about all the prison and criminal influences in his life. It all started with the convict in the marshes, then two more visits with him (or someone who knew him). And now he’s just returned from Newgate Prison with Wemmick, having walked among many prisoners. He regrets his decision to go there now, feeling tainted and dirty, and right before seeing Estella again. When her coach finally arrives, Pip gets a fleeting vision of a nameless dark shadow. Ummmm, who or what is that?

[Chaper 33] Estella gives her instructions to Pip – where she’s to go and how to pay for the carriage. She says, “We have no choice, you and I, but to obey our instructions. We are not free to follow our own devices, you and I.” So, Estella’s future is probably all mapped out for her, just like Pip’s.
