Unfortunately, he arrives only to see that Tom is dying from a beating by Legree. Tom is taken to rural Louisiana with a group of new slaves, including Emmeline, whom the demonic Legree has purchased to use as a sex slave, replacing his previous sex slave Cassy.
Cassy and Emmeline travel to Montreal where George and Eliza now live. Tom attempts to write a letter to his wife and children but his illiteracy prevents him.
Clare finally must accept the knowledge that she is dying. Legree does not receive much character growth or in-depth analysis behind his actions. Separated from her daughter by slavery, she became pregnant again but killed the child because she could not stand to have another child taken from her.
