She is sentenced to stand for several hours on the town's scaffold exposed to public shame and to wear a scarlet "A" for the rest of her life.

Meanwhile, Hester's long-absent husband, Roger Chillingworth, returning on the very day Hester must endure her public humiliation decides to remain silent concerning his own identity but determines to seek revenge on Hester's lover.
