Transcript of Halloween and
How are Scout and Jem growing up?
“‘Ain’t you scare of haints?’ We laughed. Haints, Hot Steams, incantations, secret signs, had vanished with our years as mist with sunrise.” (292)
Why does Mr. Ewell have a grudge against everybody?
"'I don't like it Atticus, I don't like it at all,' was Aunt Alexandra's assessment of these events. 'That man seems to have a running grudge against everyone connected with the case. I know how that kind are about paying off grudges, but I don't understand why he should harbor one-he had his way in court, didn't he?’”(286-287)
Everything is back to normal by mid-october, but three strange events occur. First, Bob Ewell acquires and loses a job and blames it on Atticus. Secondly, someone breaks into Judge Taylor’s house. Lastly, Bob Ewell starts to follow Helen Robinson to work every morning, so she tells her boss, Link Deas, and he threatens Ewell. Scout looks forward to the Halloween pageant at school. Scout, dressed as a ham, goes with Jem to the pageant. She misses her entrance to the pageant but the crowd laughs. On their way home, Jem and Scout are attacked by a mysterious person, and breaks Jem’s arm. Bob Ewell is found dead under the tree with a knife in his ribs.
