For a small town like Maycomb, there seemed to be many unusual things happening during the course of To Kill a Mockingbird. The three things that Scout mentioned during Chapter 27 included:

  • Helen Robinson being stalked and harrassed by Bob Ewell. This happened as a direct result of Bob being embarrassed during the trial by Atticus.
  • Judge Taylor discovering a prowler on his back porch, where "A shadow on the corner of the house caught his eye." It was probably Bob Ewell again, seeking revenge against the judge.
  • How Bob Ewell "acquired and lost a job in a matter of days." Naturally, he blamed Atticus for losing it.
