Ekay looks back at the Forest, growing ever more distant in the horizon. He muses in a rather poetic fashion to himself that the Forest has let them go, but not without consequence. The sacrifices their friends made to reach this point and the horrendous ways they have passed on has left the groups escape bitter sweet. Knowing the Plainswalkers have become part of the Forest in one way or another can be felt in Ekay’s expression, thinking of how it is “holding tight” on his comrades.
Fuzzball looks up at their saviour as she leads them away with Zyn, towards a new path. Ekay, however, can’t help but not continue to look back, as they tread onwards.
