Episode Summary

Jane Eyre Episode 5
Although he is taciturn, and often moody, Rochester is impressed by Jane's spirit. Increasingly drawn to her, he begins to engage her in long, intimate conversations. Jane learns the story of Adèle's mother, Céline, a Parisian opera-singer who was once Rochester's mistress. He claims Céline left Adèle on his doorstep: she is not his daughter, but he couldn't abandon the girl. By now, Jane has begun to feel an attraction to Rochester and to think of Thornfield as home. But this dream is shattered when, in the middle of the night, she wakes with a start to hear strange noises in the corridor outside her room. Following the sound of footsteps Jane races to Rochester's room where she discovers his bed is on fire, and his life is in grave danger. Jane saves Rochester's life - rousing him from his bed, and helping put out the fire raging in his room.moreless
