1984: Book 2, Chapter VIII Summary By: Anika Barua, Andrew Wang, Amy Yun, and Natalie Yung
Winston AND Julia enter O’Brien’s flat with the servant escorting them in and Winston immediately just thinks “We did it!” O’Brien seems as if he could care less about anything in the world because he doesn’t even bother to look up from what he is doing. But at the same time O’Brien seems as if he has very good work ethics and is very diligent in whatever he does, so then again his next impression could be interpreted different ways.
Winston starts to rethink his thoughts on the eye contact that they had. O’Brien quickly turned the telescreen off, and Winston and Julia were taken aback. O’Brien says, “Shall I say it, or will you?”, and O’Brien assures him that everything is really turned off. Winston starts telling O’Brien of everything that he and Julia believe.
They take wine that only Inner Party members get and drink. They raise their glasses of wine to their leader: Emmanuel Goldstein. Winston ask about Emmanuel Goldstein, the Thought Police, and whether or not they were real,. O’Brien said that both were real, however he did not know where Goldstein was.
Winston answers a few questions to show that he would do anything for the rebellion. When O’Brien asked whether or not Julia and Winston would separate for the benefit of the Brotherhood, Julia intervened and said “No!” while Winston was speechless, but he said no. O’Brien tells the two that it was a good idea to tell him everything because then they could get somewhere in their planning. He tells Martin to get back to work and memorize their faces because they will definitely meet again.
O’Brien tells them that no one knows how to tell another Brotherhood member from an ordinary person. Julia leaves, and Winston tells O’Brien their secret hiding place above Charrington's shop. O'Brien tells Winston that he will give Winston a copy of Goldstein’s book and a bunch of instructions for Winston to follow to get the book. Winston asks about the rhyme Mr. Charrington taught him; O’Brien gives the last line to him and then a tablet. Winston finally leaves himself.
