This episode begins with Locke meeting Jean for the first time. The two don’t get along at the start. Later Chains sends Jean off to train to become a brawler.
In the “present day” Locke meets with Capa Barsavi only to discover that Nazca has been killed. Locke confronts The Falconer, but this doesn’t end well for Locke. Locke devises a clever and colorful event to get out of his obligation to Capa Barsavi.
- Nazca isn’t dead.
- The Gray King is Locke’s father.
- Locke will be responsible (or blamed) for The Falconers death.
- The magic in this world is tied to the Eldren.
Next week we’ll read through the interlude entitled “The Half Crown War.”
