Jack is asserting himself as more powerful at the assemblies. He consistently attacks Ralph's decisions as a sign of weakness. Ralph can hardly believe the Twin's claims of a beast but Jack takes the opportunity to offer protection or at least the idea of it. By disagreeing with Ralph at every turn, Jack asserts himself as a stronger more viable leader.
