At the end of chapter 1, what can the reader infer the following quote may foreshadow?

…instead of the eyes of the girl, the eyes of the aged prisoner gazed mournfully at Winston…


Winston will become a prisoner because of the actions and events he engages in that coincide with the Party.


Winston has the realization that the prisoner he makes eye contact with was a person whom he knew from his past.


Winston's life will never be altered because he is symbolically a prisoner of the Party who doesn't have control over his own life and decisions.


Winston's eye contact with the prisoner indicates his internal longing to disengage from the Party and become free of their demands.


Winston feels no remorse for the prisoner; he feels like the prisoner is deserving of his sentence and knows he will always feel like going against the Party is unacceptable.
