Chapter 35:

The Fiesta

(The Summary of “El Filibusterismo”)

Basilio sees Simoun placing the lamp at the center of the house.  Basilio is about to leave the place when he sees Isagani.  He tries to convince Isagani to stay away from the house and explains that the lamp from Simoun would explode killing everybody in the house.  In a rare act of love and loyalty to Paulita, he boldly rushes to the house, quickly throwing the lamp into the river to prevent it from exploding.
