Joe! That's right- Joe Gargery! As we recall from previous chapters, Pip is highly ashamed of Joe. Now that he's a part of "high society" it is safe to assume that he's going to be even more ashamed of him! That's so sad! Joe has unconditionally loved Pip since he came to live with him at the Forge not to mention that he's been completely supportive in Pip's wishes to become a gentleman.
Ultimately, Joe’s visit to London will reintroduce the theme of social contrast, showing just how awkward Pip’s position between the social classes has become; he worries both that Joe will disapprove of his new life and that the figures in his new life will disapprove of Joe.
