After they leave the Nightly Double Johnny and Ponyboy get jumped by the Socs. When they got jumped they tried to drown Ponyboy, so Johnny pulled out a switchblade and killed Bob.
After they kill Bob, Ponyboy and Johnny have to runaway.
When Johnny and Ponyboy are on there way back they see that the old church they were staying in was on fire.
