The four wolves and Cheza escape into the "Forest of Death" where Cheza feels weak because of the lack of sunlight (or moonlight) and water. While in the forest, they meet a cryptic owl that leads them into a cave with huge, carnivorous bugs. Meanwhile, Quent is interrogated by soldiers from Cher's retrieval squad and Cher has been captured by Darcia.
- When Cheza heals Toboe's twisted ankle, it appears that everything about the Flower Maiden (not just her scent and song) is appealing to wolves, as they also revert to canine-like behavior and ask her to pet them like one would a dog.
-this episode will be the ending of the 1st script of 3 parts for a movie adaption.
When Hige asks Tsume "who died and made him boss", Kiba cuts in saying that "their's is not that kind of pack". He is alluding to the fact that a normal wolf pack would have a male and female alpha wolf who assert their dominance over the other wolves in the group.
