In this scene Manette is introduced in a frail state. We also see Lucie's reaction to her father she hasn't ever seen. The scene includes Lucie, Mr. and Mrs. Defarge, Lorry, and of course Dr. Manette. This shows how badly solitary confinement for almost 2 decades has effected his psyche. This builds the base of Dr. Manettes's character by having him revert back to this state.
Storming of the Bastille
The Revolution waits for no one
Dr. Manette is making shoes at his workbench. His mental state is back to where he was in prison. This shows how he doesn't want to make shoes but it gives him comfort. He goes here whenever something from his past is brought up to haunt him. When his workbench is destroyed he has nothing to turn to for comfort.
Darnay's Last Trial
And with Dr. Manette's letter Darnay is sentenced to death
The "only" remaining Marquis hates the poor people of the towns and villages. That is why he ran over the child while riding furiously through the streets. In this scene there is the father, the child, and Marquis. He is a wealthy person so he decides that he will just toss the father a handful of coins. This comes up later to be the reason for his death because the father decided he wanted revenge against him.
Is Mrs. Defarge going to miss Darnay's execution.
The Defarges are leading the Storming of the Bastille, officialy starting the French Revolution. Mrs Defarge leads the mob into the Bastille, freeing many of the prisoners. Mr. Defarge also goes up to 105 North Tower to get Dr. Manette's letter. In this scene there is Mr. and Mrs. Defarge, The Vengeance and the Governor. This scene is very important because it starts the movement for the revolution which leads to chaos and beheading by the guillotine.
Darnay's final trial determines the fate of Darnay's life and family in turn. Darnay's last trial went well with Dr. Manette's inf;luence but the Defarges are in charge in this trial. They bring out a letter that Manette wrote about the atrocities that the Evermondes commited. Because of this he is sentenced to death so that means that the rest of their family will die as well. This scene includes Lucie, Dr. Manette, Lorry, Darnay and the Judge.
In this scene Carton is impersonating Darnay because he was being executed. Carton knocked out Darnay with a mysterious substance and changed clothes with him because they look identical. Carton is very happy because he knows that his sacrifice has saved the lives of all of his friends and that they hold him in their hearts. This scene comes after the scene where Mrs. Defarge is shot so the Vengeance and the mob are worried that she'll miss it.
