An injured Crozier is brought to Hickey's camp where they speak briefly and Hickey requests Crozier's injuries be tended to by Goodsir. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Edward Little tries to organize a rescue party to help Crozier but the rest of the men refuse and instead continue to keep moving south. Goodsir speaks with Crozier regarding the current situation and Crozier tries to reassure him things will be alright but Goodsir is despondent. He informs Crozier that when he's dead and his body is to be consumed, eat only the feet, preferably the soles if possible. Hickey summons Crozier where they discuss the nature of the Tuunbaq and Hickey admits Crozier is his equal and he thanks him for that.
