Finally Tom confronts Falconetti after the third mate is assaulted by him and the other man now remembers where he saw Tom fight. Tom is told he must get off ship when they get into the New York port. Tom discovers Rudy has been looking for him, due to their mother's change in health. On her death bed, Mrs. Jordache apologizes to Tom, saying that maybe she gave too much to Rudy and there wasn't enough left for Tom, but Tom says it's OK and that he loves her. Tom discovers that Rudy invested the $3000 he tried to give Rudy and today is worth about $48,000. He calls his friend, the third mate, and tells him they have their boat. Rudy promises Tom that he'll find Wesley. Rudy is elected state senator and is called home to a very drunk and destructive, Julie.
