Content warning: violence, elements of body horror. In our finale, Colt finally goes camping with Freddy, Garrett dispenses wisdom (and Molotovs), Lincoln deals with the haunting presence of Mateo, and Accalia leads the Jessup Pack in the great confrontation. Situations are tense, emotions run high, and the wolves are thirsty (for blood, of course, what else would they be thirsty for? *wink*). (Note: ~30 minutes was lost to the void when Maria forgot to re-hit record, but there's a vague description of what happened written out!)

Sunset Reed, an agent of the Iron Hand Protection League, travels in disguise as the musician Distant Echo - returning to the temple for the first time since they helped destroy it. Master Jade Serpent and his loyal apprentice Elegant Aspen are stranded at the temple seemingly by chance - but there may be a darker design behind their visit. Finally, Five Feathers Dancer has wandered the earth since the destruction of the temple, haunted by a dark revelation about her family, and returns once more to the place she once called home. But they are not the only people seeking refuge in the ruins of the temple - or the secrets buried there.
