Chapter 7:

Simoun

(The Summary of “El Filibusterismo”)

Basilio is about to leave the forest when he sees someone approach and starts digging near the Balete tree.  He announces his presence and is surprised that the man turns out to be Simoun the jeweler, who is none other than Crisostomo Ibarra.  Simoun convinces Basilio to cooperate in his plans of avenging the death of his mother (Sisa) and his younger brother (Crispin) but Basilio remains steadfast saying that revenge would never bring back his brother and mother.
