The community is shocked to see an aircraft flying over them, knowing the pilot will be "released". It's unusual.
The new Receiver of Memory!
Jonas remembers the time him and Asher were playing catch with an apple that he took home because it somehow changed.
Jonas talks about the dream he had to his family. He says the main feeling was "the wanting" to bathe Fiona, his friend. His mother calls it "The Stirrings."
During the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas is assigned as Receiver of Memory, unexpectedly.
After the multiple times of training from the Giver, Jonas asks to see a "release" now that he has the right to do so. Upset, Jonas and The Giver plan to escape.
The plan is for Jonas to leave the community with Gabriel during the middle of night. When they start getting closer to Elsewhere they are faced with problems. When they finally get there, Jonas hears music for the first time.
