Orlick for a time is employed as Joe’s tempestuous journeyman who is threatened by Pip and who worries that Pip will one day replace him at the forge. Pip is convinced that Orlick is the culprit in Mrs. Joe’s assault. Pip convinces Jaggers to fire Orlick because he doesn’t trust him. Orlick eventually links up with Compeyson and lures Pip to a sluice-house where he plans to kill him. Pips anger seems justified to me.
