Full Episode Summary

Two nights before the wedding, Jane has a nightmare and wakes with a start to a yet more terrifying vision of a strange woman in her bedroom. She wants to believe Rochester's explanation that it was part of her dream, but the results are scarily real - Jane's wedding veil has been ripped in two. The wedding day arrives, but as the pair stands at the altar they are interrupted by a lawyer, Briggs, and Richard Mason, who announce that Rochester is already married to Mason's sister Bertha. Rochester takes the wedding party up to the North Tower, introduces them to his wife, and relates his history. Rochester's father wanted to preserve his estate by marrying him off to a wife who would bring a rich dowry. He was sent to the Caribbean and tricked into marrying Berthab unaware of the insanity running through her family. Bertha quickly succumbed to madness, but Rochester didn't abandon her.moreless
