Well, I was wondering how they'd deal with the last two kinjes without killing off Zed and Talon. Knowing that the series was ending soon made me think it was conceivable that they'd actually kill Zed; but as soon as Zed passed the kinj off to one of the others, I realized almost instantly that it meant Nedra would probably be killed, since she was the only one of the three who wasn't a main-title regular. Although they did fake me out with Munt for just a moment. So it turns out that even burning a Master to ash won't prevent their resurrection. Indeed, it'll just condemn more civilians to getting their life force sucked up to fuel the resurrection. So Talon's mission is pretty futile. Although I presume she'll somehow learn the full story from Aster and realize he's on their side.
