[powers off]
[General Grievous chuckling]
Be calm.
You are under the protection
of the Mountain Clan now.
With the power of the Nightsisters broken,
their spells have faded.
You're fortunate to be alive.
Let me show you
what this dark day has wrought.
I'm afraid there's nothing left
of your people.
You are welcome to stay
with the Mountain Clan
until you decide your new path.
[blasters firing]
[General Grievous chuckling]
[chuckling continues]
[witch 1] Who's to say
that won't happen to us?
And what if they don't stop there?
What if they come looking
for us in the mountains?
[matron] That's not going to happen.
[witch 1] I'm sure her clan
didn't think it would happen either.
Do not give your fear
such fertile ground to take root.
The hunt is today.
You may join Nali if you feel so inclined.
[ships approaching]
The droids are still hunting.
We're safe enough here in the mountains.
After what you've seen,
do you really believe that's true?
Your friends are right to be scared.
Your way of life will no longer be enough
to protect your people.
I could help you.
You need only ask.
I watched my mother die.
Are you prepared for the same,
knowing there was more
you could have done to prevent it?
What troubles you, my child?
Do you think the droids
will leave us alone?
[matron] As long as we leave them alone.
It's just
If they came,
how would we defend ourselves if
I hear Morgan Elsbeth's words
on your lips.
We must trust our path.
What's going on?
They've asked for my help.
As a precaution.
Morgan has some weapons.
[witch 1] We won't bring them
to the village.
We should trust our way.
There's no harm in looking.
Are you coming or not?
[ships approaching]
[metal clangs]
You must not assume just because
someone does not want to fight
that they are not capable.
Now, where is my daughter?
[Nali breathes shakily]
Mo Mother,
Our way is true.
I'm sorry.
It appears your path is set,
Morgan Elsbeth.
I pity you, for I can see what is to come.
