Winston and Julia are betrayed by O'Brien, Mr. Charrington, and the thought-police. They are betrayed because they all allow Winston and Julia to rent a room in Charrington's shop where they carry out the physical aspects of their clandestine affair and they implicate themselves inextricably. When the iron voice behind the picture orders them to "remain exactly where you are. Make no movement until you are ordered" (230) they realize they have been betrayed. Betrayal also occurs later in the novel when Winston is interrogated in Room 101. He betrays Julia and tries to blame everything on her.
