Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Jirix: Hey, the Supreme Leader said to stay here!
Hobgoblin Soldier #1: We should be helping him!
Hobgoblin Soldier #2: Yeah!

Panel 2

Jirix: Those are positive energy spirits now, not flesh-and-blood humans! You can't hit them with nonmagical weapons like that!
Jirix: Trust me, we're a LOT safer staying right—

Panel 3

Miko Miyazaki decapitates Jirix with a high kick, "POW!" His head strikes the first hobgoblin, "clunk!", killing him.

Panel 4

Miko continues past, killing the remaining soldier with a karate chop, "chop!"

Panel 5

The throne room. Scores of dead paladins lie below the flying Ghost-martyrs which they became. Soon fights Xykon while Redcloack turns five of the remaining spirits, "POOF! POOF! POOF! POOF! POOF!". O-Chul remains paralyzed by Soon's Gate.

Panel 6

Miko sees the carnage from the throne room door with alarm.

Panel 7

Miko Miyazaki: It all makes sense now. I understand what I need to do.

Panel 8

Miko: The path is clear.
She enters the throne room.

Panel 9

Cut to Elan in the wall tower.
Elan: ...
Elan: Hey, did anyone else get that foreboding feeling just now?

Panel 10

Elan: Guys?
Haley: No, we are NOT launching ourselves into the throne room using the catapult!
Belkar: Why the hell not?
Haley: Because we don't know how to aim a catapult that precisely!
Belkar: Right, and that's why we fling the two nameless soldiers first, so we can see where they splat and adjust our aim accordingly.
Kazumi Kato: *gulp!*
Belkar: I mean, seriously, do I have to think of everything around here???
