- Panel 1
Vaarsuvius: Are you certain they will be capable of eluding their former captors in those mountains?
Haley: Sure. My Azure City resistance was able to operate for months in the—
- Panel 2
- Panel 3
Haley readies her bow, V a spell.
Haley: Who are you?
Beautician: I'm—I'm the palace beautician.
Haley: Why are you in my room?
Beautician: General Tarquin sent me. I've been waiting a few hours.
- Panel 4
Beautician: He told me that you had been up late drinking, and you might want to freshen up before the parade.
Beautician: After all, you will be sitting next to his son in front of the whole city. He wants to be sure you look your very best.
- Panel 5
Haley: Tell him I'm not interested. You probably use, like, dead baby hair gel or something anyway.
Beautician: All of the spa's mundane and magical treatments are cruelty-free.
Beautician: Oh, yes. The General's eighth wife had all of the cruelty cut out with a sword and sent elsewhere.

Haley: Does that mean there's no more room for fun today?
- Panel 9
Elan releases his three balloons and removes his vest.
Elan: Well, there is still a parade tonight, but I think I can shove some more in.
Haley: Works for me. Get over here.
- Panel 10
Outside the Palace of Blood
Elan: You know, I had just assumed that your short hair was somehow symbolic of your character growth.
Haley: Me too! I guess it was just a crappy haircut.
- The title is a pun on the word "locks" which can be a device to secure something or a tuft of hair. Picking mechanical locks is a core skill of Rogues like Haley in D&D.
- Haley's hair was hacked off by Crystal in #610.
