  1. I would think Cathy would marry Edgar Linton in order to save the Heights far, far more than Hindley . But back then it was one and the same if she didn't want to see the Heights to go to strangers though his mismanagement .

    However Cathy did love Linton. ...just not anything like she loved Heathcliff as she carefully explained to Nelly . But before Heathcliff's returned, Cathy was a brisk , settled matron expecting to supply her kind husband with a brace of sons.That persona went smash when Heathcliff did return and Cathy reawakened to herself with shattering force.

    But even Heathcliff 's reappearance wasn't the death knell. It was Edgar Linton's mistrustful barring Heathcliff from the Grange and Cathy altogether . Cut off from the heath and now the returned Heathcliff , Cathy became ill .

    Lintion then doubled down his mistake by the fatal , and characteristic error, of leaving Cathy alone in her room for three days . He should have pounded on the door and insisted on seeing her. She was waiting for that as a last possible chance for him and her on this earth. But alas even though Linton loved Cathy, and knew her ill he did not have that power of love in him and never would...( as Heathcliff pointed out ) and there was the final blow. She saw what passed for Linton's love in all its puny glory...mistrustful, temped , mild like milk. Cathy could not thrive on such fare.

    Heathcliff would not have waited ten minutes much less three days . Cathy was like the very air to him. You don't sensibly wait for air to return . You desperately seek it. That was love as she understood it
