Bledsoe says to the narrator greatly help move the plot of the novel. First, the narrator sees that Dr. Bledsoe is not who he thought he was. The narrator once looked up to Dr. Bledsoe because he thought Dr. Bledsoe got to where he is through hard work, not by manipulating and going against what he likes. The narrator lost the only idol he had, and in a sense is now all alone. He has nobody to look up to or to get advice from.
