A major spoiler concerning Lautrec if you fancy it - once he's back at Firelink Shrine, kill the bugger.
Why you should do this is twofold. Firstly he'll drop a ring that once equipped, will increase your stamina and health by 20%, which is a most welcome boost at this point of your adventure (although beware that the ring will break if you take it off - my main lad has been wearing it for over 100 hours!)
Secondly, he's going to kill the Firekeeper (the mute lady beneath the bonfire) beneath Firelink Shrine. This will disable the bonfire at Firelink until such point that you fight with Lautrec much later and regain her soul. I went this route durning my NG+ and found not having that bonfire to be a royal pain at times.
