Washing up on shore, the unconscious man is brought home, but his wife is nowhere to be found, and it appears that she has died. The man is grief-stricken. The other woman comes to his house, assuming their plan has succeeded. Enraged, the man begins to strangle her, but the word comes that his wife has been found.
