In our last chapter of Mr. Punch of Belgrave Square, Punch, Robert and Lennie made a grisly discovery. As Ethel stood in the doorway holding the body of poor Jenny as Mrs. Pepper sobbed nearby. Clearly Ethel's plan to intimidate Orpha Polk backfired terribly. But, what happened?
This shocking turn of events is going to change a lot of things at No. 65. Mr. Punch is not going to take this lightly. Orpha has exacted too much harm on those about whom he cares. You'll see him start to rely on his Punchinello instincts, and we'll see Robert act in ways that he normally wouldn't condone. Even Lennie will find herself behaving in a manner which she finds surprising.
As the staff and the family upstairs struggle to cope with Jenny's death, each person has his or her own battle with which to contend. However, Ethel is the most traumatized of all. This has left the poor girl shattered, and Mrs. Pepper mist make a tough decision regarding her scullery maid.
