Piggy finds a conch shell and is amazed by the shell. Ralph blows through the shell thinking that it will call all of the other boys on the island to them.
All of the other boys show up and they have a meeting. Ralph and Piggy are introduced to jack, who is the leader of the choir boys. Jack wants to be leader but the group of boys call for a vote. Ralph is later elected leader for the group of boys.
Ralph and the boys decide to make smoke signals in hope of being rescued. Jack takes Piggy's glasses and uses them to start a fire.
The boys don't control the fire, and the fire ends up burning down half of the forest. One of the boys goes missing.
Jack and the twins surround a pig. This time jack kills the pig and doesn't leave his hunt empty handed.
