Ralph’s group assembles to discuss the attack of the night before and to decide what to do. They opt to go to Jack’s group to ask for the return of Piggy’s glasses, thinking that reminding the group of the importance of a signal fire will win them over. Samneric express worry about the confrontation, noting that the others will be painted.

Ralph is trying to regain some semblance of order.
