“Pride and Prejudice” follows Elizabeth Bennet, the dynamic protagonist, who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and eventually comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness.

In the previous episode, Elizabeth shares what she heard about Darcy from Wickham with her sister, Jane. Jane takes the more reasonable stance that there must be more to the story. Elizabeth is already sure Wickham is correct.

All the sisters attend a ball at Netherfield, and Wickham is not there. Elizabeth feels obliged to dance with Mr. Collins, and she has an awful time. The other sisters have a wonderful time, as dancing was a thrill for them.
