Up in Clare's room, Clare checks her shrinking supply of suppressant.

Suddenly outside, four warriors march pass the inn. The apparent leader, Jean, stops in her tracks. She senses Clare's faint aura emanating from the second-story window, despite Clare being on the suppressant. But Jean dismisses it as her imagination and moves on.
