The quiet after the storm comes in the form of “Repose”. The storm has passed, and once more our intrepid travelers have a moment to rest.
As Barsch and Kingston ponder how to escape from their temporary sanctuary (using the Solar Staff no less!), Alza is nowhere to be found.
Her abandonment (and decision to ultimately stay) of the group is but the first of many, as she struggles to come to terms with their presence and usefulness. Thankfully, she realizes that being with them is still valuable to her.
Unfortunately for them, the next scene, “She is Dangerous” (or “Alas, Poor Erebus” as it is informally known) shows that Alza remaining with the group might not have been the best outcome.
Look forward to it!
And remember, Never Lose Your Stride!
