Finally...some kind of healing can begin.
I am very glad to see Saratt able to smile and even laugh under these circumstances...that tells me that there is hope for him, that somehow, his spirit was not broken despite all of the torture, and despite the hard road he has ahead of him and the challenges he will face.
To him, it seems this is a preferable set of challenges--because he's free.
I think I understand what was going on with the shadow, though I could be wrong so I don't want to say it here.
I was also deeply touched by Av'Roo's gift--and Jeto's defense of Ya'val when O'Riordan made her nasty comment.
And Brenok's singing...never has it been more meaningful than that.
