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, Mrs. Bennet arrives with two more of her daughters, Lydia and Catherine, to visit Jane and Elizabeth at Netherfield.
Mrs. Bennet makes a general fool of herself, trying too hard to convince Bingley to remain there, and boasting about Jane’s beauty. Fifteen year old Lydia Bennet boldly asks Bingley whether he will hold a ball at Netherfield.
