The Final act begins.
Arun finishes reading a poem from the basement's limited library. Celia expresses concern over Georgie and Melanie being above ground, but Arun reassures her that they cannot be harmed. Celia has a feeling that something is happening, causing Laverne to admit that she went too close to the stairs and realised that there were more watchers, four or five as opposed to the previous two.
Arun encourages the others to have faith in their prophets. An unnamed person mentions that people named Song and Christopher were not protected by their cult leaders. Celia repeats her fears, but Laverne shares her doubts that anything can get worse, since the world has already ended.
