The Guild Master’s General managed to convince (Future) Alexand Merek to agree to a candid interview with the reporter Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray from 101 Downtime News. Bizzi has no idea how he managed to secure this interview, but Alexand allowed the film crew to set camp in her grounds, and after a wardrobe change and an hour with the network’s makeup team, the interview is ready to commence. (For my magical son, Sam. Everyone else thought it was raining, but you knew they were all wrong.)
The Guild Master’s General had transported Katherine from the cart, and both of them watch from a distance, phased between matter and energy, so that Xan and Edith, and the unsuspecting Eric cannot see they are witnesses to Eric’s poisoning.
