In London, Charles Dickens is speaking at the London Cultural Society and introduces Sir John's wife Lady Jane who speaks with the audience regarding the missing expedition and how she would like donors to finance a rescue party. Back at camp, the men are recovering from the Tuunbaq's attack earlier and despite the large number of dead and missing, continue to move south. Fitzjames tries tow one of the sledges along with the men but collapses due to his worsening health and Crozier has him ride one of the sledges instead.
