They turn on the lights and The Brand tells them if they mention a word of this story to anyone, they'll die from the poison in the darts. They ask why both sparring them and The Brand says she appreciates their support of the Union during the strike. As such, she will spare their lives as long as they don't talk about the story.
As Alana and Marko argue, they suddenly realize Klara is missing.
Downstairs, Heist gets Prince Robot IV to think about when he was about to die. He recalls thinking about being in an orgy. Heist claims the opposite of war is sex, peace is just a lull in battle. Klara suddenly appears downstairs and threatens Prince and calls him a drone. He Prince retaliates and shoots at Klara and knocks her back.
