With Flora and Mrs Grose on their way to London, Miss Giddens turns her attention to Miles. At tea, she attempts to talk with him, but Miles replies by being evasive and glib as usual until she asks him why he was sent home from school. Miles admits that he was sent home bacause he was frightening the other boys with violence and vulgar language. When Miss Giddens presses him further as to who taught him this language and behavior, Miles turns on her, calling her a "hussy", laughing maniacally and accusing her of asking all these questions in order to prove to herself that she isn't insane. In the window behind him, Peter Quint's face can be seen laughing along with Miles. Miles then runs outside, and Miss Giddens follows, telling him that all he has to do is to "say his name." She catches up with Miles when he trips on the stairs, then cradles him in her arms, asking him repeatedly to "say his name". Suddenly, Quint appears on the garden wall. Miss Giddens turns Miles to face him and tells him that "he's here". Miles screams, "Where...where?", then collapses on the ground. Miss Giddens again cradles him in her arms, kissing his forehead, assuring him that he is free, until she realizes that he is actually dead. In the final scene, she pulls him to her and kisses him full on the lips.
