Tommy Barrett launches a vicious assault on Private Buckley and is sentenced to hang. With food rations being cut Ross urges the governor not to weaken in his decision as he will need military support in case of rebellion. He does not tell him that he has ordered his arrest should he fail to support the sentence. Meanwhile MacDonald suspects that Ross's apparent new-found gentleness is a ploy to come between him and Kitty and Letters is forced to admit to fellow convict Stubbins that he has lied about his wife's infidelity to spare his feelings. For James however the problem is to keep from the other prisoners the fact that he will be the hangman and the target of their revenge.
