Cold open[edit | edit source]

The purge team surrounds Teresa on a bridge. Priscilla releases her Yoma power.

Fight in village[edit | edit source]

Unexpected[edit | edit source]

The team attacks, but Teresa eventually cuts down all four warriors, leaving them prostrate and bleeding in the street. Teresa tells Clare to get their things and they leave town.

Out-of-control[edit | edit source]

Enraged by her defeat, Priscilla releases even more Yoma energy, which translates into Yoma power, bulking up her body. Thus empowered, Priscilla pursues Teresa.

Plateau[edit | edit source]

More Yoma power[edit | edit source]

The Yoma-like Priscilla catches up with Teresa and Clare. Despite her Yoma power, Priscilla still cannot defeat Teresa.

Ilena, Sophia and Noel arrive and witness the fight.

Priscilla attacks Teresa

Point of no return[edit | edit source]

Priscilla releases too much energy and asks to be killed. But Teresa stops her Yoma energy release, lowers her cover and hesitates—Priscilla cuts off Teresa's hands, then beheads her.

Priscilla releases all her Yoma Energy. She becomes an awakened being, sprouting wings and a horn on her forehead.

The Purge team attacks Priscilla, but she cuts off Ilena's left arm. When Noel and Sophia attack on either side, Priscilla's extensible claws kill them both. Priscilla gratuitously slashes at Ilena, who goes down.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Priscilla walks past Clare, ignoring her and flies away to parts unknown.

Clare gets up and picks up Teresa's head. Clare cradles it as she kneels on the plateau floor, all alone.
