After the memories of all the past start flooding in and the ceremony of release to elsewhere for Fiona has stopped. The Giver gets everyones attention and says "We need to get the people of the community to the annex so I can explain what is happening to them".
The people of the community start to follow the Giver and the Chief of Elders to the annex. As they follow Fiona asks the Giver what had happened to Jonas and if he is ok, the Giver replies with "Once we all get to the annex I can explain that to everyone".
Fiona and the Giver are last to enter the Annex. The Giver stops Fiona and tells her that he will be needing her help once they get in. Even though Fiona is scared she firmly suggest that she is ready and asks if he is as well. Both the Giver and Fiona follow each other into the Annex to where all of the people of the community are waiting.
