Heck Tate and Link Deas show up at the Finch's house to discuss the trial and Tom Robinson. Jem and Scout listen in on the conversation and Jem gets very concerned about Atticus' safety.
Since Jem doesn't play with them much anymore, Scout and Dill hang out at Deer's Pasture and Scout tells him about what happened last summer. When they get home, Atticus has to leave for something.
Jem has a bad feeling about it, so he takes Scout and Dill down to the jail. There they see Atticus being confronted by some men that want to see Tom Robinson. Scout runs over and talks to them. The men eventually leave, and Atticus sends the kids home.
