Tea Cake is teaching Janie to play checkers because he offered. This reveals he thinks Janie is smart which is a good thing and he feels comftable around her and this is changing him to love her. (Hurston 96)
The fiend in him must kill and Janie was the only living thing he saw. (Hurston 183-184). This is indicating in this story that the rabies he got bit from the dog is taking his personality over.
Janie is back with Phoeby and told her about what happened while she was gone. Pheoby has developed alot of faith in Janie and positivity. This made Pheoby a better person and rise above the drama. (Hurston 191).
