The giver encourages Jonas to leave because he realizes after many years of following the rules of the community. “Having you here with me over the past year has made me realize that things need to change.” The giver wants things to change. He feels that Jonas can help the community be releasing all the memories. The giver won’t go with Jonas because he says “Together we take away all their protection from the memoires the community will be left with no one to help them, they will be thrown into chaos they will destroy themselves.” If he leaves the memoires will be released and the community and the community will be turned into turmoil.
I actually think the ending has a disappointing and confusing ending. I didn’t know what was going ot happen but not that. I was confused about the music playing at the end, it seemed like it was just a memory that the giver had given him before his time to die, (music). She left it on a whim to have another book and I don’t know whether she does have another book. It’s a very, VERY confusing ending.
