Her initial attitude towards John is one of sadness and suspicion. The house is quiet and there are a lot of furtive and incriminating glares towards her husband. You could cut the tension with a knife! Here are a few quotes that are of particular note:
Elizabeth greets him with suspicion. Her first words in the play are:
"What keeps you so late? It's almost dark" (Act 2, lines 1-2).
"John, I counted myself so plain, so poorly made, no honest love could come to me! Suspicion kissed you when I did. . . . It were a cold house I kept!" (Act 4)
