Parson gapes open-mouthed, absolutely boggled by what he's seeing.|||
The ruins of the Gobwin Knob Portal Room are open to the outside. One wall and parts of the floor and ceiling survived, creating a niche in the mountainside.
Parson and Maggie stand in this niche near the portal, while Sizemore crouches at the other side of what remains of the chamber.
Parson turns toward Sizemore, who is holding a shovel and grinning. The surrounding moutains can be seen in the background.|||
A closeup view of Sizemore's happy smile as he lifts his shovel and describes his experience.|||
Sizemore Rockwell: I learned more about this place in seconds than in all the rest of my life.
Want to know one thing I learned?
A beam of light from the head of Sizemore's shovel falls upon a nearby rock, causing a spot to glow green. Parson turns away to look out over the landscape as Maggie stands aloof in the background.|||
Sizemore Rockwell: We didn't mine out even a third of the gems in this mountain.
I tried to blast the best pockets up to the surface.
Sizemore holds the gem up in front of Parson. Parson reaches out toward the gem as he considers the implications.|||
What we see of Parson's face in the foreground shows a wide-eyed expression as he takes in this development. Behind him is a doorway that survived the collapse, from which a faint red light and a voice emanate.|||
Wanda is now wearing a particularly skimpy red outfit, mostly consisting of a bikini, forearm bracers, and boots. Her right hand is raised to grasp one side of an object concealed behind a nimbus of bright red sparkles. She is laughing maniacally.|||
- ^ Clockwise from Maggie, the faces resemble:
- Zatanna from the DC Comics universe
- The Scarlet Witch from the Marvel Comics universe
- Doctor Strange from the Marvel Comics universe.
- ^ These are two of the casters seen when Parson first arrived: the "Wicked Witch of the West" and "Doctor Strange".
- ^ This is the first time we have seen Wanda laugh, and she previously claimed that she never does.
