Episode Summary

Jane Eyre Episode 1
Orphaned as a child, Jane Eyre is brought up in the cruel and loveless household of her aunt, Mrs. Reed, at Gateshead Hall. She is an outsider in the Reed family, rejected by her cousins Georgiana and Eliza, and tormented by their brother John. As a result, Jane develops an active imaginative life dreaming of foreign landscapes, artistic expression, and escape. One day, John Reed provokes Jane to fight back against his attacks - then blames the entire trouble on her, calling for Mrs. Reed's intervention. So follows a terrifying night locked in the Red Room, where Jane receives a spectral visitation from the corpse of her Uncle Reed. Soon, the austere clergyman, Mr Brocklehurst, who runs a charitable institution called Lowood School, visits Jane. Without a reconciliation of any kind with her aunt, and aged only ten, Jane is to be sent away.moreless
