1. He sees filthy boys with splinted sticks run out of the burning jungle. He sees little boys with distended bellies climb out in filthy rags.

2. Ralph can't articulate what happened before breaking down, β€œHe gave himself up to them now for the first time on the island; great, shuddering spasms of grief that seemed to wrench his whole body."

3. The boys smoke Ralph out (burn the island down). Eventually he makes his last run towards the beach.
