Incident #2: Someone tried to break into Judge Taylor’s house one evening. The judge had gone to let his dog out when he noticed that the screen door on his back porch had been opened. It seems likely that Bob Ewell was behind the break-in.
Incident #3: Mr. Link Deas had given Helen Robinson a job. To get to work, she would walk a mile out of her way to avoid the bullying of the Ewells. When Mr. Deas found out about it, he demanded that the Ewells leave her alone. However, the next morning, Bob Ewell stalked her and terrorized her as she made her way to work: “All the way…she heard a soft voice behind her, crooning foul words.” Mr. Deas confronted Ewell again and threatened to have him arrested for assault if he continued to bully Helen.
Briefly summarize these three incidents.
What is her costume made of?
stops short in the middle of a sentence. When Scout asks her what is wrong, she comes to her senses and shrugs it off: “Oh nothing…somebody just walked over my grave.” It is as if Aunt Alexandra sensed that something bad was about to happen.
In the final paragraph, Scout explains that since neither Atticus nor Alexandra can take her to the pageant, Jem will escort her. She says, “Thus began our longest journey together,” ominously hinting that the evening will prove to be a dramatic one for the two of them.
