Rainsford heard a sound from off the boat. He went to go see what it was and after not being able to locate it he went over the rail. His pipe fell and he lunged for it. Losing his balance, he fell into the ocean.
After Rainsford knocked at the door multiple times, he was greeted by a deaf giant that had a pistol pointed straight at Rainsfords heart.
General Zaroff starts explaining his interest in hunting and how he's perfected it so much that he's bored of hunting ordinary prey. So he's started hunting humans that have fallen off passing by boats. He wants to take Rainsford with him on one of his hunts.

Rainsford managed to kill Ivan with another trap of his. Releasing the dogs and killing one of the generals friends. The general is furious at Rainsford as he managed to escape from him and survive the final night.
Rainsford sneaked into the Generals bedroom and told him that he was angry. After that they battled and the general became dog food. The bed was the comfiest bed he'd ever slept in.
