Sergeant Timmins considers it too dangerous to pursue James into the jungle so he claims to have shot him, getting his men to fire their guns. Vicar Johnson makes Anne Meredith tell his wife that she does not have the gift of second sight but Mrs Johnson realizes that this is a lie and goes for a session with Anne, who encourages her to try for a baby with her husband. The Johnsons also expose Ross's sadistic treatment of Kitty as a result of which he appears to be contrite, offering his men to build the Johnsons' church and softening in his attitude towards Kitty. James returns from the jungle after a confrontation with another escapee. He is due to hang but pardoned on condition that he becomes the colony's hangman himself.
