Elizabeth and the Gardiners receive an invitation to Pemberley, where Darcy and Elizabeth share significant glances. The next morning, Elizabeth receives two letters from Jane concerning Lydia's elopement with Wickham. Elizabeth makes plans to return to Longbourn, while Mr. and Mrs. Bennet try to deal with the possible scandal; until they receive a letter from Mr. Gardiner, saying that Lydia and Wickham have been found, are not married, but will soon be under the Gardiners' care. As Mr. Bennet muses at how easily the issue has been resolved, Elizabeth informs Jane about her last meeting with Darcy, including her ambivalent feelings for him. Much to her surprise, Elizabeth soon discovers that Darcy played a significant role in the return of the errant couple. When Bingley and Darcy return to Netherfield in the autumn, Darcy apologises to Bingley for intervening in his relationship with Jane and gives his blessing for the couple to wed. Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who has heard rumours of an engagement between Darcy and Elizabeth, pays Elizabeth an unannounced visit. With desires for Darcy to marry her own sickly daughter Anne, she insists that Elizabeth renounce Darcy, but Elizabeth will not rule out a future engagement. When Elizabeth thanks Darcy for his role in Lydia's marriage, Lady Catherine's story encourages Darcy to reconfirm his feelings for Elizabeth.
