In his first week of work, Tom Shiftlet makes a lot of progress, and teaches the younger Lucynell, a deaf-mute, to say a few words
Her mother suggests that he teach her to say, "sugarpie," and it is obvious that she hopes they will get married
He decides that he is going to make the old car run again, and the elder Lucynell agrees to give him the money he needs to fix it
The next day, he has it running, and drives it out of the garage.
That night, the elder Lucynell Crater makes explicit her offer of her daughter as a wife.
At first, Tom Shiftlet says he cannot get married because he has no money. But she argues that her daughter doesn't know the difference, and says that she will pay to paint the car by Saturday so that they can drive to the courthouse and get married. She also offers to give him money for a modest honeymoon, and he is convinced.
That Saturday, the three of them drive to the courthouse and the younger Lucynell Crater and Tom Shiftlet are married legally
Tom Shiftlet says he is unsatisfied with the wedding, since "that was just something a woman in an office did, nothing but paperwork and blood tests."
They drop the elder Lucynell Crater off at the house, and she is clearly pained to say goodbye to her daughter since they have never been separated before; however, she expects to see them again after two days
After driving one hundred miles, Tom Shiftlet stops at The Hot Spot, a restaurant.
Lucynell promptly falls asleep on the counter. He buys her a plate of food and tells the boy working at the counter to give it to her when she wakes up; he explains that she is a hitchhiker and that he can't wait since he has to make it to Tuscaloosa
As he drives away, he sees the occasional sign reading, "Drive carefully. The life you save may be your own."
Soon, he picks up a boy wearing overalls who is hitchhiking with a suitcase
Tom Shiftlet begins to talk to the boy, who is unresponsive at first. He talks about his mother, whom he praises as "the best old mother in the world," and muses that the worst day of his life was when he left her. This is clearly making the boy uncomfortable.
As Tom Shiftlet begins to tear up from talking about his angelic mother, the hitchhiking boy tells him, "You go to the devil! My old woman is a flea bag and yours is a stinking polecat!" and throws himself from the passenger door. A storm cloud descends and it starts to rain as Tom Shiftlet continues to drive toward Mobile.
Danforth and Hawthorne meet in a jail cell and discuss their concerns with Parris' erratic behavior and Hale's return to Salem.
Parris joins them and reveals that Hale is advising the prisoners to confess.
Parris also reveals that Abigail ran away with his life's savings, most likely because of the rising societal discontent with the court's activities.
Both Parris and Hale beg Danforth to either pardon the prisoners or postpone the hangings until confessions are obtained because Rebecca Nurse and John Proctor still have such good reputations, and their executions could cause an uprising.
Danforth refuses because he's already executed other prisoners accused of the same crimes, and he doesn't want to look weak.
They decide to bring in Elizabeth Proctor so she can talk to John and hopefully convince him to confess before he is sent to the gallows.
John and Elizabeth discuss this decision, and John is leaning towards confessing because he doesn't feel he's worthy of martyrdom.
Elizabeth tells him he has to make his own choice.
John begins to confess, but he falters when he is ordered to sign his name to the confession and learns that it will be displayed publicly.
He tears up the confession and decides he will go to his death rather than permanently ruin his reputation and sacrifice the only integrity he has left.
The officials try to convince Elizabeth to stop him, but she refuses because she recognizes this is the only way John can end his feelings of self-hatred.
John and Rebecca Nurse are led to the gallows to be executed.
