Teo introduces Elwin to the two Halfs she plans on sponsoring, and asks Elwin whether she can give a tour to the pair, as Teo needs to go to the guild with Parr. Elwin stays silent for a moment, then agrees, prompting Parr to ask her whether it is all right for her to spend time in this way, as many assignments are in full-swing in this time of the year. Elwin tells her to not worry because she already finished her assignments, which earns her praise from Teo. Teo then asks Parr to go with her, and Parr tries to protest against leaving Elwin by herself, but Teo tells her to not worry and leave, as Elwin says goodbye to them both.
When the two fighters are out of earshot, Maruna commends Elwin for not being an idiot, and Elwin replies that she couldn't help it, as not only her would die, but Teo and Parr will too. Gandharva is surprised that Elwin knows Maruna and understands Sura speech, and Elwin surprises him further by recognizing him as the Half who helped her seven years ago despite the different hair length, then goes on to wonder why a Half would pretend to be brothers with a superior Sura; whether he was threatened to do it. Maruna says that he had indeed threatened him into going along with it, then Elwin asks him why he pretended to be a Half, and says that she will help him out as long as he didn't damage the city, because she owes him her life.
Parr tries to tell Teo that leaving Elwin alone is a dangerous thing, since she is afraid that 'Runa' is a superior sura. She says that she tried to tell Teo in the village, but the opposition of the Halfs there was too severe. She emphasizes that she doesn't suspect him because he's strong, but because she saw him seven years ago. Teo agrees with that, saying that Elwin saw him seven years ago too. Teo says that since she had lost her memories, she had been questioning Elwin for every single detail she remembers, since all the fighters who were with her that day died except for Parr.
She says that the Teo Rakan that showed goodwill towards a stranger died seven years ago, and Parr starts crying. Teo panics at the tears, but Parr assures her that she's crying tears of relief, since no one else believed her. Teo apologizes for that, and justifies it by saying that Parr's weakness is that she shows much emotions and would have given everything away, which Parr doesn't deny. Parr asks what Teo's plans are for now, and Teo replies that Elwin told her that the superior Sura doesn't kill Halfs from allied clans carelessly. Teo doesn't think that he would be carelessly violent, since took the effort of pretending to be a Half. She deduces that he must be holding some hidden motive to come into the cities despite the gods being active, and says that rather than sticking close to him, it would be more effective to have Elwin pretend to help him to figure out his motive, until the gods arrive.
In Rindhallow, Laila tells Chandra that an important document arrived to him from the Chaos Temple, and Chandra reads while grumbling about humans daring to send documents to a god. He stops grumbling when he reads on, and after a pause, he asks whether a similar letter was sent to Agni. When Laila affirms so, Chandra says that he must go to the city first, as he and Agni have different views about how deal with this situation.
In Mistyshore, Ran is asking Shess to give him a ride to Kalibloom. He explains that he will miss the day of Chaos he should arrive in if he boarded a ship or went through the water tunnel, and when Shess points out that he could've hired a number of professional Vayu magicians. Shess says that Ran should have enough money, and wonders why he doesn't hire magicians, but call on a Sura for help, which is not how Shess expected him to act after Agwen revealed to him that Shess is a Sura because of his Half phobia.
Ran explains that if he hires a big amount of magicians, Rana would hear of it, and would mistake it for him running away from being a Priest. He says that he can't explain the details to her because Chandra told him to not speak of it, and Shess mentally remarks on how he thought it was fine to tell a Sura about this despite that. Shess agrees to help, and asks Ran to get on his back so they can leave. Ran is puzzled because he expected that Shess would use a transcendental to fly, seeing as Agwen told him that he traveled from one side of the planet to other in one night, and Shess tells him that he was just running. Shess tells Ran to hurry before he changes his mind, and Ran tries to backpedal because he doesn't want to be carried piggyback-style by someone who looks close to his age. Shess says that he'll just carry Ran then, and proceeds to him despite his protests to how he's being treated, and they leave behind an empty cliff in their wake.
How many times has Parr cried so far?
<image: Elwin remembers little boy Gandharva> He changed his hairstyle and still got recognized.
Elwin has been growing her bangs since Season 2 to hide those eyes. They don't have any special powers... It's just that many people don't like them. Elwin doesn't like to get into fights, but she often gets dragged into them because of those eyes.
<image: Elwin's old composite sketches> The jig is up! There's even a photo of Gandharva.
The sketches of Riagara and Maruna were based on Elwin's recollection. If those documents had been released to the public, there would've been a commotion as soon as everyone saw Maruna in the half village. But nobody recognized him, so maybe these documents were kept private? Why weren't they released?
<image: Parr is relieved> If their shoes had similar heels, Parr would be slightly taller.
Some of you are curious whether Parr is a cat, a dog, or a wolf, but she is just a Yaksha. The Yakshas don't have bodies that are in the shape of a particular animal like cats, dogs, or wolves as we know them. They're mostly a mixture of lots of things. The bottom line is that you shouldn't think about it too much.
<image: Ran imagines an angry Rana> Ran never won against Rana.
The sad thing about when I draw Ran and Rana is that they got married between Season 2 and 3, so I left out all of their sweet romance... and now they have four kids... so that sweetness is...
For those who are curious about Rana's parents and siblings—If you go back and look at Episode 3-2, you'll see that Rana has neither parents nor siblings. Similar to how Lorraine was Asha's sponsor, Eline was Rana's sponsor.
- Questions raised in this episode:
- Why does Chandra want to sneak around Agni?
- How badly screwed are the "brothers"?
