Johnny transforms from the quiet greasers’ pet to the smart, tough boy who has taken the life of another human being. Ironically, both boys get what they wished for, a new life. This also marks another chapter in Ponyboy’s coming of age. He now is associated with the death of someone who was killed on purpose, at just fourteen. He will have to live with this for the rest of his life. I think this is the first climax to the book and a point of no return for the two boys. From here, the story could go anywhere, and I suspect part of it will end up with Ponyboy and Johnny linking up with the greasers to explain their story. Also, Johnny stayed true to his word when he said he would never let another Soc beat him up. I also learned that Johnny would become a new father figure for

Ponyboy was so happy to see them and now he really wanted to cry, but being a Greaser, he couldn’t.
After this they call Dally and he goes picks them up and takes them to a Church outside of town. They hide out here for awhile until Dallas comes to check up on them.
