Hareton saw Mr. Lockwood in through the kitchen door where Catherine was cooking. At the parlor, Mr. Lockwood passed the note from Mrs. Dean which Hareton grabbed although he could hardly read. Hareton and Catherine get along with many arguments. Hareton is a quick learner; he has adopted the abusive and violent nature of Heathcliff. He terrorizes Catherine.


The session compares the concept of pity and judgment. Mr. Lockwood narration from the first time he requested for renting space and when he returned to make good his promise a lot have changed. His coming to pay his rental dues is a gentlemanly action. Mr. Lockwood trip makes a complete circle of events. There is the change in Wuthering Heights. One explanation may be the many inhabitants of Thrushcross Grange have crossed over and influenced the culture back to Victorian times. The competitors are aware we exist. The gates that were previously locked are wide open and inviting. The death of Heathcliff was a welcome relief. The culture and social habits of the people of Wuthering Heights have changed for the better. Mr. Lockwood is mesmerized by his new experience.
