Immediately after returning home, we see that Tom is back in his regular routine despite his attempt to change. He easily manipulates Aunt Polly by telling her about the dream. Tom explains everything he saw overheard when he crossed the river and sneaked into the house a few nights earlier. Aunt Polly is easily fooled.
