Mr.Utterson, the lawyer and his cousin, Mr. Enfield were on their weekly walk to Soho Street. They find themselves standing in front of a dark and mysterious door. Mr.Enfield relates a night where he ran into a cruel man who had to go into that door. He knocked a small girl and ran over her and then walked inside the door without apologizing or bothering to help the girl stand up He told the man's name is Hyde.
O GOD ! O GOD !
With this information, Utterson becomes very concerned about his friend, Dr.Jekyll, his good friend. He had recently changed his will to instruct that if anything happens to him, everything that belonged to him should be given to Hyde. Utterson feared that Jekyll had been blackmailed by Hyde.
Late one night, a maid of Dr. Jekyll’s witnesses the brutal beating murder of a Sir Danvers Carew by Edward Hyde. Utterson goes to Jekyll, who assures him that Hyde is gone for good. He gives Utterson a letter from Hyde, which Utterson later suspects Jekyll has forged. Jekyll’s servants are frightened by things they’ve heard and seen in Jekyll’s laboratory, so they summon Utterson. They knock down the door to the laboratory and find Hyde dead from poison.
After Hyde’s disappearance, Jekyll sent a desperate letter to Dr. Lanyon, begging him to get a drawer from his laboratory. Hyde,the real Hyde, comes to pick it up, mixes up the contents, and drinks the mixture. He transforms into Henry Jekyll in front of Lanyon’s eyes. Lanyon is so distraught that he dies a few weeks later. He relates all of these events to Utterson in a letter to be opened only in the death or disappearance of Dr. Jekyll.
Utterson next reads a letter from Dr. Jekyll, which was left to him in the laboratory, along with a new copy of Jekyll’s will, leaving everything to Utterson. It relates that all his life, Jekyll felt that there were two sides to himself. Through various experiments, he unleashes Mr. Hyde, who is pure evil and thrilling to be. Eventually, however, Hyde begins to take over Jekyll, and Jekyll begins to fear and hate him.
Jekyll refuses to change into Hyde for about 2 months, but soon, the temptation takes back over. Suppressed for so long, Hyde, in a rage, murders Sir Carew, Danvers Carew's father, This scares Jekyll into killing Hyde off for good, but eventually, he gives into temptation again. After this, Hyde begins to take over Jekyll every few hours, and Jekyll runs mad for a solution. He leaves a letter and changed will for Utterson, knowing that Dr.Jekyll will soon be gone forever.
