The chapter opens with a discussion between Madame de Cintré and Newman about Lord Deepmere. Without saying anything against him, it is apparent that Madame de Cintré finds him rather peculiar. Then Newman finds Lord Deepmere in conversation with Madame de Bellegarde and Lord Deepmere is embarrassed by the appearance of Newman. Then at the end of the chapter, Newman finds Lord Deepmere in private and agitated conversation with Madame de Cintré. Thus, his role in this chapter is central to the following actions in later chapters.As Madame de Cintré says, blood is thicker than water. Earlier we had seen that the Marquis de Bellegarde was delighted to find Lord Deepmere. Then we must assume that he has plans for Lord Deepmere to marry Madame de Cintré. Then Madame de Bellegarde was apparently giving him the same advice. The conversation between the three is filled with double entendre or double meaning.
