Off the top of my head, we do see Jim Brading's and Mrs. Walker's thoughts in WDMTGTS. Dot's (of course) pop in whenever she appears. I don't recall Captain Flint's unexpressed thoughts coming up, or Mrs. Blackett's. When they were harboring misgivings, those came out in speech (even if it was a monolog to Polly).

Then there's Timothy, whose thoughts in PP we had to infer from his actions, up until the Grand Reunion. So there's a third category; those whose actions are only explained by subsequent discourse.
