When her naive husband falls in disgrace after an unsuccessful surgery of the clubfoot Hippolyte, Emma despises him. She meets Boulanger with more frequency and spends a large amount using the credit with the Merchant Lheureux expecting to leave Charles and travel with Boulanger to Rouen. However, her lover sends a letter to her ending their affair and travels alone.
