Go Set a Watchman | Part 7, Chapter 19 | Summary



Hank and Jean Louise agree to a date. Jean Louise apologizes to her father; he says he is proud of her for her boldness in confronting him and challenging his opinions. Jean Louise gets into the car to take her father home, and she does so without bumping her head.


The hero returns home with the "treasure" she has gained. Now that she has been transformed, she can help others in their transformation, as Uncle Jack has modeled for her.

Jean Louise gets into the car without bumping her head, signifying that she has learned to drive herself without the resistance and pain she had previously experienced. In addition, she has learned to bend in accepting what she cannot change. She returns to Hank and to her father, although it is not clear what her relationship with Hank will be in the future. Atticus struggles to get into the car, but the transformed Jean Louise is now able to accept human frailty. She is poised to offer help to her father, as well as to Hank and the larger society.
