Rainsford confronts Zaroff in his bedroom, ready to duel. Zaroff should win because of the fatigue that Rainsford has acquired from fighting for his life the past three days.
Rainsford had prevailed! Now that Zaroff was gone, Rainsford decided that he would give the general a proper burial.
Rainsford had remembered Zaroff talking about the sailors he had captured, and after searching for awhile , he had finally found them. They were terrified, but warmed up to Rinsford after he explained the situation. Rainsford knew he had to get everyone off of the island.
After searching for hours for something that would be able to get them off of the island, the group found a washed up boat. They decided that with the help of the whole group, they could get the boat fixed.
After hours of relentless work, the group got the boat fixed, and set sail in the direction that Rainsford´s boat had originally came from.
They had finally made it! They had successfully made landfall. They were ecstatic that they were finally free of the island.
