Chapter 20: Jane and everyone else in the house are woken up by a terrible scream that night. Rochester tells everyone it was simply a servant having a nightmare, but it actually came from Mr. Mason's room -- he's been stabbed. Jane is asked by Rochester to help care for Mr. Mason's wounds. After Mr. Mason is treated to by a doctor and leaves, Rochester and Jane take a walk in the garden. He asks Jane about "overleaping obstacles" and marrying Blanche before returning to the manor.
