They arrive at the Aegis stone too late, as they’re close enough to see the explosion as Zafir and the anointed finally penetrate it.
The group rushes forward, and finds that Zafir and the Anointed have already passed down into the Eerie. Shayliss insists they return to warn Greyhaven, but Zeke refuses. He’s going to rescue Justice no matter what.
Nightingale sides with Zeke, arguging that it will take time for the monsters inside to notice. If they can get Justice out quickly, they can save her and still warn the city.
The Maluma tries to persuade Nightingale not to enter, but she ignores it, leading the way down into the depths.
