Pip (Douglas Booth) is now a young man of great expectations and starts his new life as a gentleman in London, quickly acquiring expensive tastes, and mounting debts.
Rooms have been arranged for Pip. He will stay with Herbert Pocket (Harry Lloyd), a relative of Miss Havisham (Gillian Anderson), who Pip came to blows with as a child. The prospect makes him uneasy at first but Pip quickly forms a strong friendship with Herbert.
Falling deeper in love with Estella (Vanessa Kirby) Pip escorts her around town. He must vie for her affections though as Bentley Drummle (Tom Burke) enters the race.
As his twenty-first birthday approaches, Pip eagerly waits for his benefactor and his intentions to be revealed.
