You have to hand it to Elizabeth Bennet: She’s got mettle.
In the latest Pride and Prejudice and Zombies preview, Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is startled by a late-night visit from Lady Catherine (Lena Headey) and a brute named Wilhelm (Ryan Oliva). Lady Catherine disapproves of the rumors that her nephew Mr. Darcy is romantically involved with Lizzy. Lizzy denies it, but also doesn’t promise that something won’t happen.
At Catherine’s command, Wilhelm attacks Elizabeth. Too bad for Wilhelm Lizzy is a trained fighter and dispatches him thusly.
“I do not know which I admire more, Elizabeth Bennet,” Catherine seethes. “Your skill as a warrior, or your resolve as a woman.”
