As the children continue to sit and eat their turkey dinner, Meg despairs that the Charles Wallace sitting before her isn’t the Charles Wallace that she knows. Though he looked like Charles Wallace, he also had the “sameness” about him that the other people on the planet Camazotz had. Meg screams at the Man with the Red Eyes, but Calvin tells her to save her energy and that what they should do is try to hold on to Charles Wallace as best they can.

They each grab his arms, but Charles Wallace is now stronger than he was before. He releases himself from their grasp and Meg tries to tackle the Man, but is stopped by his body guards.
