Only two more pages left to in this chapter. Don't forget that there will be a three-week main story break following it, but in that time there will be new pages with a short, canon story that introduces a character who will be more important down the line. It's one of our favorite sequences in the comic to date, so I suggest sticking around for it.

Anyway, we get to see our mystery attackers here. Sure nobody's too shocked by this but then, wasn't planning to make it that huge of a twist anyway. More this is just continuing the theme of Sarabeth testing Alex by setting up obstacles for him - we won't be seeing much more of that from here on out, at least.

I recall that at one point a long while ago, back when this sequence was going to be more the focus of the chapter instead of just the ending which was changed ages ago, there was an intention to set up Jack and Libby as sort of fake-outs for who was responsible. That would have probably been pretty transparent, though, particularly since the two haven't had any Eighth Sin connection established (and they don't have one, don't worry), and they hate each other anyway.

When I did the line-art, I made Alex's second knife look like the Eternal Reward weapon in Team Fortress 2. Colors changes that, but still. I guess Sarabeth got Starchild's gear from Saxon Hale.

Beyond that, don't have much to say about the page. i47 (that's Eric and Erin's shared persona, by the way) had a really cool costume and I liked drawing the two of them side-by-side for some odd reason. They even made their way into the chapter after this in those same outfits.
