The group takes stock after Zafir and the anointed are gone. Damocles is furious with Nightingale and seems like he might be abandoning them, but Nightingale calls him out and he apologizes reluctantly. He isn’t going to leave.
They need to find Echo, because she had the piece of the Pontifex that Zafir took. Nightingale asks the Maluma for help, and It agrees, in exchange for giving it control of her body during the search. She refuses.
Remi gets her attention, shouting that Gage has found tracks from where the Soul Stitcher dragged Echo through the swamp.
After gathering up their possessions, they set off after the tracks into the night.
