  • Sheila Birling
  • Key Messages/ Themes
  • She is very  perceptive: she realises that Gerald knew Daisy Renton from his reaction, the moment the Inspector mentioned her name.
    • At the end of Act II, she is the first to realise Eric's part in the story. Significantly, she is the first to wonder who the Inspector really is, saying to him, 'wonderingly', "I don't understand about you."
      • She warns the others "he's giving us the rope - so that we'll hang ourselves" (Act II) and, near the end, is the first to consider whether the Inspector may not be real.
