By scond, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
In her prison cell, Hester is in a nervous frenzy, and her daughter suffers from painful convulsions.
The jailer brings in physician, Roger Chillingworth, to attend to Hester and the baby. Hester suddenly becomes silent when she recognizes the visitor.
Leave me alone with my patient. Hester Prynne will be more amenable to your authority soon.
If you can accomplish that! The woman hath been like a possessed one.
The medicine is potent for good; and were it my child, I could do no better for it!
Wouldst thou avenge thyself on the innocent babe?
If death be in this cup, I bid thee think again, ere thou beholdest me quaff it!
Even if I imagine a scheme of vengeance, what could i do better for my object than to let thee live?
Drink this! It may be less soothing than a sinless conscience, but it will calm the swell of thy passion.
Hester, I ask not how thou has fallen into the pit. It was my folly. I, a man already in decay, what had I to do with youth and beauty like thine own! Had I been wise, I might have foreseen this. When we came down the church steps, a married pair, I might have beheld the scarlet letter blazing in our path!
I felt no love for thee, nor feigned any.
