Great Expectations Episode 1 Recap

In the first episode, which takes place in London in 1839, Pip is shown attempting suicide. The story then jumps back in time seven years, to when Pip was younger and struggling to make ends meet. The action then turns to show two inmates, Maywitch and Compeyson, battling against each other in the next scene. Compeyson is able to light the jail on fire and flee the jail, but not before a guard has to talk him down first. As a result, Maywitch is killed in the fire.

Pip goes to his parent’s cemetery site in the middle of the night after getting into an argument with Sara (Hayley Squires) throughout the day. There, he meets Maywitch, who requests that the young Pip bring him some food. Pip agrees to do so. Maywitch also warns him that he will kill his sister if he does not comply with his demands or if he reveals this information to anyone else. Pip complies with the request, but with some reluctance. Compeyson makes an appearance right after Pip fulfills his pledge, at this point, Pip is questioned by Compeyson, which causes Pip to lie and say that he has not seen Maywitch.

When they get back to their house, Mr. Pumblechuck, played by Matt Berry, sits down to supper with Sara and confesses that Miss Havisham had inquired about Pip. Miss Havisham had taken in a lonely young girl and raised her as her own. He had chosen Pip for this task since they had been unable to locate a boy from the proper class. In spite of Sara’s elation at the prospect of receiving payment for Pip’s visit to Miss Havisham’s, the guards soon barge into the home in their search for the fugitives from the prison. Eventually, they come to the two criminals squaring off against one another in the muck. Following all that has transpired, Pip finally makes his way to see Madam Havisham, accompanied by Mr. Pumblechuck.
