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. After Dmitri's trial, Alyosha goes to Katerina's, where Ivan is ill, unconscious, and burning with high  fever; in spite of gossip, Katerina has ordered that he be brought to her house. When Alyosha  arrives, she confesses her deep regret over what she revealed during the trial but says that Dmitri's  escape is already being planned. She explains further that more help is needed; Alyosha must aid  his brother and bribe the appropriate officials. Alyosha agrees but forces Katerina to promise that  she will visit Dmitri in prison. In the meantime, little Ilusha has died, and Alyosha leaves Dmitri to go to the young boy's funeral.
