Act 2, Scene 3 Summary

Harrington and Riley discuss Joy's condition and Lewis' involvement in the situation. Lewis enters, distracted. There is a moment of silence in which all try to figure out how to bring up Joy. Eventually Lewis just begins to speak as though the thought was on everyone's mind. Harrington and Riley question what will happen to the boy if she should die and are surprised by the anger in Lewis' voice when he explains that he will take him in, reproachful of their insinuation that it is not appropriate because they are not married. Lewis then declares that he will marry Joy and asks Harrington to perform the service. Harrington and Riley remind him that because she is a divorced woman, the church would not recognize it. Harrington feels jeopardized on a professional level. Lewis tells him that he will find someone else.
