"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, Jane Bennet continues to recover from her illness slowly; and in the evening Elizabeth joined the drawing-room party. Mr. Darcy was writing, and Miss Bingley, was watching the progress of his letter and repeatedly calling off his attention by messages to his sister.

Elizabeth took up some needlework, and was sufficiently amused in attending to what passed between Darcy and Miss Bingley. Miss Bingley gets jealous with Darcy’s interest in Elizabeth. Mr. Darcy is relieved that Elizabeth is so beneath him that he can’t be tempted into a relationship with her.
