Although fond of Heathcliff, Catherine agrees to marry the more well-to-do Edgar. A distraught Heathcliff runs away, but returns three years later as a wealthy and refined gentleman. Heathcliff now sets upon a path of revenge against those who had mistreated him. He conducts a love affair with Edgar's sister Isabella, which upsets both Edgar and Catherine. He engages in gambling with Hindley, driving him broke. Catherine gives birth to Cathy and then dies. Hindley dies six months after Catherine, leaving his son Hareton an orphan. Heathcliff now becomes master of Wuthering Heights and guardian of Hareton.
Heathcliff's wife Isabella runs away and gives birth to a son, Linton. Twelve years later Isabella dies and Linton is brought to Wuthering Heights to live with Heathcliff. Heathcliff has it in mind to see Linton and Cathy married so that he can inherit Thrushcross Grange, which belongs to Cathy's father Edgar. Edgar dies, but so too does Linton soon after. Cathy moves to Wuthering Heights to live with Heathcliff and Hareton. Cathy eventually falls in love with Hareton, and Heathcliff goes mad as he is haunted by Catherine's ghost. Heathcliff dies soon after.
