Jane feels that it is best that she leave Thornfield. So, after a dream of her mother telling her to leave her temptation, Jane leaves Thornfield.

Inside the house, Jane is nourished and provided with shelter.
Jane is upset with Hannah for shutting her out when she first tried to enter the house. Hannah apoligizes for her actions.
