Monte Cristo visits his father's old home where he finds Mercedes. The two meet for what is in all probability the last time. She will accept his wealth only at her son's permission. Her son has of course gone to the military. Monte Cristo agrees with his endeavors and believes his to be of a noble heart. Mercedes watches a boat carry her son away, however, she rocks back and forth whispering "Edmond, Edmond."
