An alternate ending could be that when Ralph stumbled on the beach, he didn't find a British officer who saved him. Instead, the boys chasing him caught up to him and formed a circle as they chanted, "Kill the beast, cut his throat, bash him in." Eventually, they would be so overcome with brutality that they would kill Ralph. Jack would then behead him and put his head on a stake. This act would then give complete power to Jack because no one else would defy him.
