Part 2: Chapter 9 Summary

Rambert has given up on finding a way out of town legitimately, so he begins to look for other possibilities. And now, Cottard, who has become involved in smuggling, reappears in the narrative after being absent for several chapters. He puts Rambert in touch with an underground network that offers to help him.

Rambert goes through a long, frustrating ordeal and finally is ready to escape with the help of some of the guards. Rieux does not condemn him for trying to get away; rather, he encourages him. He assures Rambert that he is not wrong in putting love first.

Father Paneloux volunteers to join the support teams, and Rambert also volunteers to help until the time comes when he can leave Oran. Tarrou reveals to Rambert that Rieux's wife is in a sanatorium in a city at some distance.
