I always thought that when Simon is killed, all hope was lost. Simon was Golding's Christ figure. He came down from the mountain to give the boys the good news; their scary beast was a dead pilot. Simon came to save these boys from themselves. Where the others saw conflict and violence, Simon looked for grace and goodness. The boys destroyed that goodness and for that there is no redemption.
