  • Climax

  • I don't believe it!
  • When Pearl is 7, her and Hester meet again with Dimmesdale, after Dimmesdale's final sermon, they decide to run away to Europe. Dimmesdale becomes more sick day after day, and holds his hand to his heart as a sign of pain. Chillingworth finds out about this plan and books a ticket on the same ship as them.

  • Dimmesdale delivers his sermon, many say it's the best one he's ever given. He ends by calling Hester and Pearl up to the scaffold with him, he acknowledges his part in Hester's adultery, and all the guilt he has for not stepping forward as Pearl's father. He then opens his shirt and reveals a letter "A" engraved into his skin, and dies.
