At Katerina Ivanovna's, the funeral party is just beginning. The dinner was given so as to "do like  other people." The party far exceeds Katerina's means to pay, but she insisted on inviting everyone,  even her landlady, Amalia Fyodorovna Lippewechsel, whom she dislikes intensely; Lebezyatnikov  who once beat her; and Luzhin whom she does not know. When Katerina notices that many people, especially the more genteel and influential lodgers, turned  down her invitation, she blames it on her landlady and begins to act disdainful and haughty around  her. Sonya is quiet, very nervous, and apprehensive, but Raskolnikov says nothing. Then as the  party progresses, Katerina becomes openly critical and then hostile toward the landlady as though  she was responsible for all the misfortunes in Katerina's life. Finally, pandemonium breaks loose and  the entrance of Luzhin prevents an open fight.
