Ralph reminds Piggy that they helped in the MURDER of Simonm Piggy objects to the use of the term "murder" and doesn't want Samneric to know that he and Ralph were at least somewhat involved in the "deathly dance." Samneric also don't want to admit to the fact that they also helped in the murder of Simon. While Jack is more cruel to his own tribe members, Ralph and the remaining members of his group decide to let the fire die for the night rather than collecting more wood in the dark. While they try to sleep, Jack and a few other members of his tribe attack Ralph's group in their sleep, sucessfully stealing Piggy's glasses to make fires.
Ralph, Piggy and Samneric all visit Castle Rock in order to get Piggy's glasses back, since Piggy can barely see and the fact that they are important to survival. Ralph and Piggy try talking to Jack and his tribe, but things get heated once more and Jack and Ralph get into a fight, while Roger throws rocks at Ralph from above. A REAL fight this time! Both Ralph and Jack get bruised up and injured, but Piggy breaks up the fight. While Piggy breaks up the fight, Roger pushes a big boulder onto Piggy, hitting him in the face and body, pushing Piggy off of the edge, making Piggy fall 40 feet and killing him from the impact and broken back that Piggy had acquired after hitting the ground. Jack then proceeds to tell Ralph that he deserved it, and Ralph runs away, hiding in the forest! Jack FORCES Samneric to join him and his tribe.

Someone from the tribe hears them talking to Ralph and punishes them. Ralph finds a thicket and sleeps in it. THe next morning, his thicket is betrayed by Samneric. The tribe can't get into it, so they roll boulders into it and set it on fire. Ralph escapes, finding another thicket, but then being found again.
