The more I read, the more convinced I am that Ursula Monkton was just trying to give ‘George’ precisely what he wanted - for the world he hated to just stop existing. She has to please everyone, so she can’t get rid of the world, but she could get rid of him from it, so she just gave the father the chance to do him a kindness for once, and that translated to the bathroom scene.

I love that we finally got to see the ocean at the end of the Lane come to life. That was cool.

I'd never thought of that before but you might be right. And maybe there was something about the connection he made with Lettie Hempstock that led him to change his mind. Which in a sort-of-roundabout way maybe confused her just enough that she was defeated.
