Cold open[edit | edit source]

Clare's right arm is missing. Desperate, she tries to escape Ophelia.[6]

Final showdown[edit | edit source]

Clare stops for a moment and tries to replicate Deneve's Instant Reproduction. But she fails to regenerate her missing arm.[7]

Ophelia finds Clare. She again explains that Clare cannot regenerate her arm, since she is an Offensive type. Clare tries to hide up in a tree, but Ophelia easily spots her and brings Clare crashing to the forest floor.[8] Without her right arm, Clare is nearly helpless. Then Ophelia cuts off Clare's left hand. Clare is about to die.[9]

Mysterious intruder[edit | edit source]
