In this episode the fifth and final member of the cast is introduced, Kyle James makes an exit for the next two episodes:
*Tristen Marks, entrepreneur and businessman, is the COO of the company sponsoring Rhaplanca’s concert.
Also introduced is Incindia’s rival:
Kyle makes all due haste away from the sound. His Ether powered motorcycle is heard rushing away from the ever increasing sound. Meanwhile, driven by the urge to understand its construction, Daria rushes off to follow the sound and, grudgingly, Incindia, Tristen and (when she realises that the shelter is in the same direction) Rhaplanca.
Daria eventually stops the mech by calling out to it with a modified car speaker system and Rhaplanca’s signature microphone. After a brief exchange, the group follow it, though Rhaplanca stays near the shelter. When Daria, Tristen and Incindia catch up to the mech (which they conclude is dedicated to The Fist) in a stolen car it asks them directions to the local army base. After Daria tells the pilot, he warns them to stop following or he will be forced to crush them.
Oligopoly, Core’s dedicated God of War, responds to the threat of the Fist mech, and the battle creates a shock wave enough to knock some of the party off their feet.
While the trio are returning, Rhaplanca contacts her god, calling on a major favour (the cost of which is to clothe an entire orphanage worth of children in designer clothes) and creates illusions with her god’s power: dozens of Oligopoly clones are now facing the Fist mech, which doesn’t know which one is worth attacking.
The four regroup just in time for a trio of Puma tanks to roll up and declare that the city is under a forced evacuation order. One of the tanks remains to escort the group out of the city. The group loses the tank in an attempt (at Incindia’s request) to check on her restaurant. The tank, however, is somehow directly in front of Chez Glacies when they arrive. The car disassembles (due to one of Daria’s trademark ‘mystery red buttons’) and the engine – about to explode – is accidentally catapulted into the restaurant. After Incindia’s anger dies down a little (and she retrieves her recipe book), the group agrees to ride the tank to the refugee camp. Upon arrival, they spot Kyle’s motorcycle but cannot see the biker anywhere.
In the camp, the group goes to the refectory tent for some much needed food after their active evening. There, Incindia demonstrates that with the right spices, even oatmeal can be made into a pleasant meal. Unfortunately, her rival, Lumia Nox, somehow managed to bring half her kitchen along to the camp, and waltzes in with a meaty broth which gets all the attention. After a lot of unfavourable looks and snide comments between the two, Incindia proves that Lumia’s broth still needs something, and Lumia leaves in a huff.
Suddenly, the familiar sound of The Fist’s Godsong echoes quietly into the camp, growing in volume. The gang leave their tent to try and spot the incoming God of War, but it doesn’t appear to be coming at all. Once the sound reaches deafening levels, there is a blinding flash on the horizon, and moments later, a dust cloud forming around the epicentre of an explosion – Core. The Godsong falls silent.
