Dr. Flint is more determined than ever to force Linda into submission. He constantly reminds her of his authority over her children, pointing out that he looks forward to selling them for large sums when they reach maturity. He reminds her that he is the only person in the world with the power to grant her and her children freedom, and tempts her with promises of a comfortable home and eventual freedom. He warns that if she resists him, she and her children will be sent to his plantation where they will be forced to do hard labor. If she believed it was in the best interest of her children, she might have been tempted to take him up on his offers, but she feels certain that he will not keep his word, for she has always found him to be dishonest. Therefore, she decides that it will be best if she goes to the plantation.

Dr. Flint's behavior and character are much the same as they had always been, but Linda has changed considerably. She originally rejected Dr. Flint's advances due to repulsion and personal pride. Although she is still repulsed by Dr. Flint, and she is still resistant to his attentions toward her, the welfare of her children has now become the primary motivation for her actions.
