In the previous chapter, the Time Traveller had concluded that the Eloi were the remnants of the aristocracy, and that the Morlocks were the remnants of the suppressed working class. What is their relationship now?

The TT revises his hypothesis: while the Eloi and Morlocks may have once had a master-slave relationship, now the Morlocks are growing in power while the Eloi are fearful. He thinks about the meat he had seen the Morlocks consume, though he is not sure why the image comes into his mind.
