The gang arrives at Felicia Bay. Tora and Poppy are sitting in silent gloom while Quincy tries to lighten the mood with his sexcapades.
As they stop for gas, Poppy mulls over the information Quincy shared: that Felicia Bay and Moonbright are clan-neutral territory. Theory time! She worries for Tora's safety and his breaking Balthuman law by covering his tattoo.
Poppy texts Erdene to forward her address to her cousins if she isn't heard from in a week, which is a REALLY LONG TIME.
They arrive at the beautiful compound, and Quincy accidentally checks out Poppy's posterior while they unpack, immediately launching into a coughing fit as he, in Kinkajou's words, "chokes on his loyalty." Poppy wonders who the compound belongs to, and is perturbed to discover that it is Tora's.
Turns out someone else is surprised at information she learns: Inspector Lane is shocked to see Tora and Poppy drive away.
