What does Utterson suspect is happening after his conversation with Guest? Why is it so disturbing to him?
Utterson believes that Dr Jekyll has forged Mr Hyde's handwriting, and that Dr Jekyll has some reason to protect Hyde, who is clearly a murderer. Utterson does not like the notion that Dr Jekyll might be mixed up in such crimes in the first place. Furthermore, he's met Hyde and been horrified by him. The notion of Dr Jekyll maintaining an intimacy with Mr Hyde induces much greater terror than the association with a crime.
Before Dr Lanyon dies, how is his reaction to Jekyll similar to that he has had in previous chapters? How is it different?
