With the help of Olive's miraculous spring, the 800 refugees eventually arrive to Ildir.
The town doesn't seem too excited to receive an influx of visitors 3x the actual population, even with Torteas' promise to offer 30% of them as slaves. After a heated discussion, Gene convinced the Tongue's leader to re-negotiate the deal and the caravan agreed to solve the earthquake problem in exchange for food and shelter through the winter.
Midian informs the group we need to kill a devil named Stéphanie so the team launches on a silver collection in the town to cast some silver weapons to poke Stéphanie with. Indira Pangol, Gene's second cousin and one of the Heart Defender, and Alana, one of the most dedicated Defender, decide to follow the prophetess into the forest to go hunt a devil.
In the mound, we meet Stéphanie, the cobra queen, and her staff of one, in her newly renovated mound palace. The team starts the build-up to an episode of Love it or List it with Steph as guest star.
