The savages' plan to spread out and hunt Ralph is much like the earlier pig hunts, where Jack and his crew searched out and viciously killed sows.


The tribe's decision to smoke Ralph out resembles in some ways the smoke in Ralph's eyes during his earlier attempts to relight the fire.


The use of boulders to try and smash Ralph closely resembles the method of Piggy's death and parallels the rock throwing earlier in the novel as well.


The hunters decision to whip themselves into a frenzy with their dance and chant is an echo of Simon's murder and the earlier killings of pigs.


Jack's role in leading the charge against Ralph is the natural outgrowth of all of his earlier confrontations with the former chief.
