In this scene, The Count of Monte Cristo is offering a ride in his carriage to Franz and Albert. Albert is very thankful and thinks the count is a generous man, but Franz is suspicious of his strangely kind behavior. "Franz and I are very grateful to you, count." says Albert. Albert was obsequious of the Count.
"What's happening? said the count. "Don't you understand? That human being who's going to die down there is furious because his fellow man isn't going to die with him." In this scene, the count steps in in order to save Peppino. Peppino is very pallor and scared of being executed. He is pardoned though.
In this scene, the count feels triumphant after giving his views about murder and death. One man is executed brutally. Franz and Albert are very indiscreet in their fear of the death.
