The two run away from Lake Como where they live, and take refuge inland paralklele. Renzo goes to Milan by a cousin, while Lucia is hiding in the convent of Monza, where he meets the Lady. Don Rodrigo, however, kidnaps Lucia from a friend of his: the Unnamed, who leads her in his castle. Lucia with prayers can move the cruel man, who lets her go. But now there's another issue that prevents Renzo and Lucia to meet: the plague.
