By the end of the story, the Misfit ends up killing the whole family. Even though the Misfit kills this family, he is not fully responsible for his actions. The Misfit kills because he has had a terrible childhood, he is mentally unstable, and he simply likes what he does. The Misfit is a killer, but may not be responsible for all of his actions because of his awful childhood. While he was a child his own father did not think he was normal, "My daddy said I was a different breed of dog from my brothers and sisters" (O'Connor).
An example of this is conflict. Gene’s conflict in this chapter is self versus self because the man who was stalked down in the middle of a field haunts him to this day. When he finds this man, the man was cut open with maggots eating his rotting organs and he was begging for Gene to kill him because he was in so much pain and he knew that he was going to die anyway. Gene struggle with his thoughts about what he should do, until he realized there was no way this man could live, which led Gene to shoot the man in the head so the man would not have to suffer more before he died. This memory has haunted him the rest of his life Gene said.
They never really got along, however he continues in the text saying that after his father’s death he began to contemplate and wonder why this was. He came to the retaliation that his father was very paranoid even with his own family. Before his death, he stopped eating food from his family because he believed they were trying to poison him. The rest of his essay speaks of the harsh society during the era of the civil rights movement. His father despised white people and barely ever trusted any of them, which was the stem of his paranoia.
Paul joined the army directly after high school and never really experienced life. Due to his inexperience and lack of knowledge of the world, the war becomes Paul’s life and in the end, his destruction. I think there were three turning points in Paul’s experience of the war which changed his perspective - when he kills a French soldier in close combat, when he returns home, and when the war appears to be lost and coming to an end. Paul is an experienced fighter whose bullets have killed many people but he has never thought philosophically about that fact. He is fighting for a cause he doesn’t really understand but yet he continues to kill and see his friends die.

The scientific community I think was the snake, they tricked him and he took the knowledge. With knowledge come power but also pain and in Charlie’s case unhappiness and anger. He went against God’s will and changed who he was, he was a person before the operation and many people failed to see that. Norma, her name is a figurative slap in Charlie’s face. The one thing he could never be … Normal.
