The scene changes to Judge Turpin’s house, where Johanna is locked up gazing out of the window onto the world (‘GREEN FINCH AND LINNET BIRD’). Judge Turpin flagellates himself over his lust for Johanna, and we see him delivering the death sentence to a petty criminal. He recognises Pirelli’s purse and Mrs Lovett locks him in the bakehouse to keep him quiet. Pirelli arrives with Tobias and reveals to Sweeney that he is in fact an old colleague who recognises his identity and blackmails him into giving over his profits each week. Mrs Lovett calms him down and tells him things come to those who ‘WAIT’. An ‘ORGAN PRELUDE’ welcomes the audience to a bleak industrial scene, before a chilling factory whistle begins the opening number. *** Song is either written specially or adapted for the film. Todd panics and kills Pirelli, leaving Tobias downstairs tucking into one of Mrs Lovett’s pies. Sweeney Todd Songs? =D!

Mrs Lovett recognises Todd as Benjamin Barker who she knew before he was arrested and sent to prison. Mrs Lovett seems more optimistic, suggesting that instead they join forces, using the flesh of Todd’s victims to fill her pies.
