In line 72 it says, "A momment later he blew out his candle.  It bothered him."  No one knew his real identity.  He was in his apartment, which wouldn't be strange to anyone out that late.  So why did he blow the candle out?  Give it some thought and develop some insight into what he was going through.

i think he blew the candle out because the candle resembled his identity and when he blew it out that was him saying if i just keep quiet i wont go to jail.

I think that the reason he blew the candle out is every time he looked at the flame it reminded him of the bishop& how he was suppose to change his ways . He felt guilty for not saying anything about the truth, that he was Jean ValJean. It went against his religion for not being honest to the guard and not coming out and telling the truth .

I think he blew out the candle so that he could try to hind in the dark form all of his pain. He probably thought that if he was in the dark he could dream that all this didnt happen and return to normal life. :)

He wanted to hide from the world because someone else is going to jail for his wrong doings by breaking perol.
