Catherine sits in an interview, surrounded by cameras and monitors. The interviewer asks her how it feels to have conclusively disproved God. Catherine shrugs, “I just ran the tests.

They sneak their way through his estate, killing the few guards who notice them, until Katla’s son, FOLKI, accidentally lets a guard sound the alarm.
