Pip is sitting around the fire and listening to Mr Wopsle tell them a story about a recent murder. A weird man asks to speak to Joe and Pip. The man questions Mr Wopsle on his thoughts of the murder and who they believe it was. The man then proceeds to take Joe aside and tell him he will offer him money for Pip. He lets Pip decide if he wants to go, and Pip decides to follow Mr Jaggers.
