The pearl was to have secured for Coyotito a good
education and for Kino, a good rifle. Kino does enter the
town carrying a rifle but this, in terms of the death of
his son, is completely meaningless.
With their entrance into the town, a third procession
occurs. This time, Juana is walking side by side with
Kino. Both have learned much from the tragedy that they
have shared. They have "gone through pain and [have] come
out on the other side." There is almost a magical
protection about them.
Kino and Juana go straight to the Gulf, where Kino gives
her the pearl to throw away. This time, Juana returns it
to Kino knowing that he alone must decide what to do with
the pearl. He draws back his arm and flings the pearl with
all his might. Finally, it settles to the bottom of the
ocean.
