P&P: Behind the Scenes – Wickham tells Lydia he is leaving — 19 Comments

  1. Well, I always wondered what he said to Lydia to have her leave Brighton. She truly is naive, and the ruin that she brings to her family is beyond her capabilities. She really was reading between invisible lines. Wickham’s mind must have been a dangerous place for you to visit. Great scene! I really enjoyed it.

    • I liike your comment that she was reading between invisible lines! And they were very calculated invisible lines! Thanks, Patty!

  2. Another great scene. Stupid girl hearing what she wants to hear and Wily Wickham letting her believe that he loves her and will marry her to get her to go with him. They are both behaving just as I would expect. Thank you.

  3. Wickham is so…slithery here. Taking advantage of a young girl’s hopes and dreams as he has done here…and in the past with Georgiana. He knows exactly what to say to entrap them. Such a scoundrel!!

    Thanks for an amazing scene–wow!

    Susanne 🙂

  4. you captures wickhams true character as we know of it,he is a rake and only cares about wealth and his own pleasures very nicely done a most delightful scene thank you for sharing with me

  5. Run Lydia RUN ! If only she knew what lay ahead for her she might think about what she is about to do and how this will impact not only her life but the lives of her family. Great chapter, thank you.

  6. Thanks, Melanie. I wonder if she would give her family a second thought if she did know upfront all her decision entails. She seems so selfish, looking out for her own interests. Hard to know.

  7. Yes, the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Ridiculously naïve child! No where does he mention “eloping” nor going to Gretna Green – perfectly written. Thank you.

  8. Oh, well done. What a smooth talker and charmer. What a devious serpent. He never mentions eloping, she only assumes it. Lydia puts words in his mouth that were never said. Poor deluded, naive child.
