Days after the events in the throne room, the party is (somewhat) split apart, each in a different location of the dungeon. Loghren is in a cage suspended in darkness, completely alone. Andraste is in slightly better conditions, though the sound of screaming is constantly around. Across from her is another prisoner named Helvar. Helvar gives her no useful information when she asks.
Meanwhile, Taman, Dawn, and Alex are all in the same location, though in different cells. There, they overhear that the death of King Graewyn is being pinned on Andraste, and there is no trial planned for any of them. Moments later, a robed figure demands Taman be taken somewhere, and a few guards carry him away. As the guards are leaving, Alex casts Unseen Servant, and has it snag the keys off of one of them.
Through Message, Alex tells Loghren and Andraste that he’s possibly found a way to break them out. He also apologizes for allowing this to happen. Though Andraste seemingly forgives him, Loghren seems angry
and rightfully so.
Afterwards, a giant spider assaults Andraste. She murders it, and Helvar is so impressed by her spider-killing abilities he asks for her help in escape. She informs him her friends will probably be around to break them out eventually, and she’ll ask them to take him with them.
Alex and Dawn are able to unlock their cells with the keys. Though they attempt to make it look like they hadn’t opened their cells, a guard notices. Dawn incapacitates him, but they make an obscene amount of noise and are forced to flee in the opposite direction of Taman.
Back in Loghren’s darkness, he sees something flutter through the air…
