This means that Darnay is next in line to inherit the aristocratic title, but he tells no one but Doctor Manette. Stryver all fall in love with Lucie Manette, who was a tearful, unwilling witness for the prosecution. After being in hiding for a year, he is found, arrested, and executed.
Doctor Manette, Miss ProssLucie, and her small child follow Darnay to Paris, where the Doctor is almost successful in using his power among the revolutionaries as a former Bastille prisoner--like the people, he was oppressed by the ruling regime--to secure Darnay's release.
He was a resident of just one city: London. What does he do? Lorry as a sort of drop-in uncle. Manette; his capture and captivity are shrouded in darkness; the Marquis' estate is burned in the dark of night; Jerry Cruncher raids graves in the darkness; Charles' second arrest also occurs at night.
