From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Pip gets lost trying to locate Clara's building, but he eventually finds it.
As soon as Pip goes inside, he hears growling noises—it's Clara's dad, a mean alcoholic with gout.
Clara is really pretty, and she and Herbert obviously looooove each other.
Pip is also totally warming up to Magwitch. They won't be able to see each other or talk very often, but Herbert will communicate between them.
Magwitch/Provis goes by a new name: Mr. Campbell.
Pip and Herbert hatch a plan to get Magwitch out of town. It's fairly elaborate: Pip will start rowing a LOT, making it a habit, so that one day, when Pip rows by Mill Pond Bank, he can pick Magwitch up and the two can row away to a big ship that will take them to another country.
Pip likes this idea, but he can't shake the feeling that he's being watched.
