Summary of Chapter 47
In Chapter 47 a few weeks later Pip, Herbert, and Magwitch are on the row boat waiting for Wemmicks signal to leave and take Magwitch down the river. Pip is in a lot of debt and feels that it is heartless fraud to use anymore of Magwitch's money. So he sells some valuable things to survive. Pips life is not really everything he imagined it would be and everything is kind of crashing down around him. Pip thinks about Estella and remembers that she is probably married now and purposely avoids learning more about them which tells us that Pip has not moved on from Estella.
The plot develops more with the return of Compeyson pursuing Magwitch. Also it develops with Pip being in debt, it shows that pip is going to be more self reliant, and Pip not wanting to know anything about Estella and Drummle shows that he still loves Estella so he probably wont move on.
Pip goes to the theater where Wopsle preforms and at the end of the plays. Wopsle tells Pip that he saw a man sitting behind Pip like a ghost trying to not be noticed and he said the man looked liked the convict that was getting mauled by the other (which was Magwitch) and Pip immediately knows it was Compeyson. Pip suspects that Compeyson is following him. Pip tells Herbert what happened and they agree to be really cautious of everything they do from now on.
