The Rundown: Twig’s quest continues to take some unexpected turns.
Twig finds himself facing the last horned beast. His quest requires the creature’s heart, but Twig finds himself unable to kill the innocent creature after they talk and the quest acquires a new member in the form of Lobee. As the group beds down for the night, Twig dreams of his quest and the dark path that it’s taking.
The group gets back on the road to their next location, the Never Knot. A journey that will test Twig’s ability to trust when a creature locked behind a gate has the answer to what they seek. As their journey continues, Twig and company find themselves facing an old adversary who has been on their trail.
