Parasha: Jekyll and Hyde May 19th reading

Everyone's been so quiet! Then again, the chapters and short and I guess there's not so much to discuss?

Anyhow, a very mysteeeeerious opening to this chapter. Oooo!

We also get a bit more of a scientific type of description of how Hyde affects people, which is... weird. But hey.

And the line between Hyde and Jeckyll is fairly blurred, although maybe that's meant to be... I mean, Hyde is very polite to Lanyon, despite his normal character, and shows a lot more self-control than you'd expect from the murderer of Carew. Then again, until we read the last chapter, I can't remember if it was more Jeckyll or Hyde in him at that point, so I guess that might be why?

At any rate, whichever one, or both, that it may have been, it was pretty damn cruel to shock Dr. Lanyon like that. I mean, you'd think that an old friend who owes the doctor for his life/sanity might, y'know, say something like "I will leave you now, but I swear that I will tell you of what is going on tomorrow," or something. But I guess that wouldn't be as dramatic!

Just one more chapter left, so one assumes we don't need a schedule link.
