While Roran is standing watch that night, the Ra’zac reappear on their flying parents/steeds; the villagers only escape detection because the horrific presence stirs the whole forest into chaos, and this convinces them to accept the barges and leave as soon as possible.

When the barges meet up with the villagers, Clovis protests that he did not agree to transport fugitives. Roran threatens him, but also tells him about the destruction of Carvahall and wins the sympathy of the captain, who no friend of the Empire. Horst comments on Roran’s increasing ruthlessness and tells him to remember who he is.
