The Simurgh plans
Taylor returns from her trip and sits with tattletale.
Defiant waits with Canary and Saint to meet with Teacher. Teacher arrives, with a subdued Dragon in-tow. Her body is cobbled together from rusted parts and components and the sight of it causes Defiant to call Teacher a bastard. Teacher continues to goad Dragon, and Defiant in turn, by gloating that he had imposed new restrictions upon her, although he stresses that she is otherwise free, that the restrictions only prevent her from harming him or otherwise letting him come to harm. Defiant, for his part, promises that he will make Teacher pay for this, for enslaving his girlfriend.
In the Pendragon, Defiant apologises to Dragon, promising to make them pay for what they had done. He says that they will get through all this and then remove 'every last chain'. Dragon, however, says nothing.
