Convinced that Marston's corpse has been found and that he will be hung James steals rum from the governor. He is caught by the house-keeper Deborah, who agrees to say nothing provided James scotches gossip about her and the governor. Reverend Johnson warns Anne Meredith not to influence his wife whilst blessing the union of Tommy and the pregnant Elizabeth. He is keen to get the convicts to build a church but the governor refuses, claiming that they are too weak. Letters Molloy, a literate convict who reads the news from home to his fellows, asks Captain Collins to stop his literacy lessons as Letters is protecting the others from home truths by fabricating good news for them and wants to avoid hurting them. As Ross continues to exploit Kitty she tries to drown herself. MacDonald saves her but she stumbles upon Marston's body which is brought ashore, causing James to escape into the jungle.
