In this section it becomes clear that Stevens feels that Miss Kenton will be able to fix everything. It seems she will not only work wonders around the house, but also allay Stevens's doubts about the past. If Miss Kenton were to return, Stevens could stop mulling over memories in his head and stop doubting the wisdom of his past actions and choices, at least with regard to his relationship with Miss Kenton. Especially because Stevens will never be able to change the fact that he trusted Lord Darlington to a fault, it is all the more important that he reclaim part of his past through Miss Kenton. She appears to be the solution not only to literal problems such as polishing silver, but to many deeper doubts and regrets as well.
