A Doll's House

In what way is retribution for past deeds at work in the Helmer family?

Dr. Rank has inherited a fatal illness from his father. Bitterly,he tells Nora "in every single family, in one way or another, the same merciless law of retribution is at work."

This is a simple case of "what goes around comes around." Helmer is in trouble, and Nora gets herself into trouble trying to fix it. Torvald is manipulative and then ends his own life. A stagnated marriage ends in the same cold way that it has existed from the beginning. The difference; the chill comes from Nora.
