Chillingworth tries to stop Dimmesdale. Roger Chillingworth grabs his arm and demands that he stop, but Dimmesdale laughs him off and says that he will now escape Chillingworth’s evil influence. If Dimmesdale goes through with this public cleansing, he will have lost all control, Chillingworth will have nothing left to live for.
