At the prison a man comes in and gives care to the baby and then to her. He gives her this medicine to drink. Once Hester Prynne had drank the medicine the man begins to ask her all kinds of questions looking for the answers.In Chapter 5, we find out that Hester is out of Prison and is now free to go or do whatever she wants to do. The strange thing is that Hester dose not move out of Boston, instead she moves to the outside boundaries of town. The way that she supports herself and her child is by her becoming a seamstress, she sews for all occasions except weddings.

As he investigates he becomes more and more evil. The town’s people start to notice that change on Chillingworth’s face and they see that the minister is not getting better but with each passing day is getting worst. Some of the town’s people start to think that Chillingworth is practicing black magic.

In chapter 10, Chillingworth and Dimmesdale are having a deep discussion about, a person ding and not confessing their sins. Dimmesdale is saying that perhaps the person wanted to but failed to act upon it. Chillingworth replies to this but saying that it is better for one to confesses then sins while they are still alive. This conversation made Chillingworth even more curious of Dimmesdale and when Dimmesdale was sleeping Chillingworth opened Dimmesdale’s shirt to see a strange mark on his chest, after seeing this Chillingworth dance with delight. In Chapter 11, Chillingworth thinks he knows Dimmesdale’s secret, which indeed he dose.
