Meredith tells Rood how they can see everything from the location they're at. The people are protected by the Tower's barrier, like a giant prison. Rood wonders what he is, seeing how he was able teleport right after going through a wall, since the wall showed no sign of teleportation magic. He then questions Meredith about what he knows about him, but Meredith responds with "I want to be friends".
