Edgar's attempt to force Heathcliff to leave is met by Cathy's hostility and Heathcliff's vicious retaliation. Only Cathy's words can persuade Heathcliff to desist. Edgar tells Cathy that if she wishes to remain friends with Heathcliff, she must also leave. Cathy reveals that she is pregnant with Edgar's child.

Isabella informs Heathcliff of Cathy's pregnancy and they leave together to marry, although Heathcliff knows that he can never be free from his love for Cathy. When they return to Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff learns that Cathy has become gravely ill. Cathy and Heathcliff are reunited one night amidst a raging storm.
