Simon's role as a Christ figure comes more into focus. He tells Ralph, out of the blue, that he will make it home, “You’ll get back all right.” Simon also volunteers to trek through the forest at night to tell Piggy where the boys are. The others find this crazy. They are scared enough at night at camp surrounded by each other. Simon realizes where the true fear and evil is; he prefers the solitude and the peace of the night time jungle.
