The volcano where Gobwin Knob stood is silhouetted against the light of the approaching dawn. The mountain profile has a flat plateau with slopes on each side; the speakers are located a bit further uphill.|||
Wanda ascends a staircase, which is now open to the outside. She is holding the Arkenpliers in her right hand. Parson follows a few steps behind. The hand of one corpse and the leg of another lie on the ruined stairway, the rest of the bodies off-panel or buried.|||
Parson Gotti: No, I killed... everybody. Our side, their side...
This wasn't self-defense.
This wasn't a general preserving his forces...
This is apocalypse!
Wanda Firebaugh: Hardly the first.
The frame shows a closeup view of Wanda's smiling face.|||
Parson is seen from Wanda's viewpoint, a few steps in front and above him. He looks distinctly unhappy. In the background, more mostly-buried corpses are visible.|||
From a viewpoint just in front of the Wanda's foot, the frame shows Parson's head and torso level with Wanda's skull-topped red boot.|||
Parson is seen from behind as he climbs to the top of the staircase to reach a relatively flat area. Wanda is crouching near a pile of rocks and ruins.|||
Parson walks up behind Wanda, whose attention is focused on the ground in front of her.|||
Parson Gotti: B'not like this, though.
I guess... I wanted to be, like... a field general, but without soldiers having to actually die for it.
Wanda Firebaugh: I see.
Wanda bends low, digging at the earth with her hands. Behind and to one side of her, Parson shrugs.|||
A wide view shows the area around Parson and Wanda. The surviving stairway leads up to a small plateau bounded on one side by the cliff slope where the stairway is situated and on the other side by a pile of rocks and ruins.|||
Parson Gotti: I mean, then... what's the lesson supposed to be here, Wanda?
"Be careful what you wish for?"
This isn't what I wished for!
Wanda lifts a blonde-haired corpse wearing a white outfit.|||
The corpse sits propped up against the ruins, revealing that it is Prince Ansom. In the foreground, Wanda looks back over her shoulder at Parson.|||
