Catherine was locked in Linton's bedroom and the two forced to marry. Linton then bragged that he is not supposed t be soft, marrying Catherine means to him owning everything that Catherine has from her books, pretty birds and all. Mrs. Dean sends workers to try help free Catherine, but Linton would not cooperate. Heathcliff violently attacks Catherine when she screams for attention. Catherine is helped to escape by Linton after having been promised many things. Linton has learned to be sleazy as Heathcliff.

The Lawyer Mr. Green varied allegiance to Heathcliff, many servants fired at Thruthcross Grange.


Revenge as a theme is discouraged. Heathcliff regarded as a cruel and violent person. Women during Victorian era had no rights. The time people who were corrupt could easily acquire property. The subject of inheritance affects many families with dependants. The greed to be wealth as a means to fight back prejudice may have motivated Heathcliff’s actions of being violent and selfish. Lawyers are never loyal they serve whoever is willing to write a cheque. The heathcliffs scheme was perfect he was going to control both Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange. Heathcliff exerts his authority by firing servants in Thrushcross Grange a means of erasing past painful memories. Mrs. Dean appears to represent continuity in the changing fortunes.
