What is portraying in this scene is Tessie is arguing with her husband that he didn't have enough time to get his ticket. This is ironic because it doesn't show how having more time would make him make a better choice.
In my opinion the mystery of the story started when everyone was trying to figure out who would be the one getting stoned, they possibly felt scared, or didn’t want it to be someone they knew
What we see from this cell is that they're surprised about the events taking place and in the story, when they find out that MS. Hutchinson is the one who must be stoned to death. (box 4, wont let me make one) what we can see from these examples is that what happened was very traumatic and affected others very strongly
