Myshkin shows once again that he is unable to forsake Natasya. He remains committed to saving her, if at all possible. Aglaia feels rejected, but she does not, in Myshkin's eyes, need salvation. Interestingly, when Natasya see Rogozhin in the crowd, she uses the words, "save me," essentially asking him to save her from her salvation. Natasya realizes that she cannot "live among the trees" of Pavlovsk; a peaceful exiistence would be foreign to her. She is more comfortable in the chaotic city setting of St. Petersberg.
