Her attempts at tricking the inspector falls short as her own sister and her husband deny her pursuit and disdain her. “…women get strange ideas at times…she is a dangerous and shameless woman” (73).

Her main priority is not the well beings of her family but of herself. As her son, grandchildren and daughter in law were taken away all she did was plea for her own life. Convincing the misfit that he should let her live because she was a lady and he was a “good boy” is all she could think to do.
She runs away with her lover, Wickham, and ruins not only her reputation - but her families as well, “Elizabeth’s power was sinking; everything must sink under such a proof of family weakness, such an assurance 3 of the deepest disgrace.
