Victor stops to rest in Paris and recover his strength.
He gets a letter from Elizabeth, asking him if he is in love with someone else. Nope, not the last time he checked.
He thinks about the monster’s threats, still so painfully oblivious to the monster’s true intent. He decides to get on with the marriage and fight the monster, win or lose, to be free of him one way or the other.
Back in Geneva, he tells Elizabeth that he has a terrible secret. He can’t tell her until after they are married. This is never a good sign.
Elizabeth, however, is unfazed.
So they get married and go off to a family cottage in pretty much the middle of nowhere.
