Alyosha then goes to his brother and tells him that Katerina also will come, but Dmitri has weightier  problems troubling him. He explains his desire to repent and, through suffering, to become a new  human being. He fears only one thing: that he will be unable to carry out his intentions if the  authorities do not let Grushenka accompany him. Alyosha explains the plans that have been made  for the escape, and Dmitri reluctantly agrees to them. He makes one stipulation, however; he  escapes only for the present. Someday he must return to Mother Russia. Katerina then enters, and she and Dmitri ask each other for forgiveness. Peace is not so easy,  though, even now, for Grushenka unexpectedly arrives. Although Katerina begs her for forgiveness,  Grushenka still feels too bitter toward her former rival to acknowledge any pleas. In the meantime, little Ilusha has died, and Alyosha leaves Dmitri to go to the young boy's funeral.
