Before Winter could open the box, Bell flower and Dunster Happ convince her to bring them back to the castle instead as they are trapped in the snow. At the Redemption house/central prison of the Empire, Bufkin is interrogated. He is told that he is going to be hanged. Winter returns with Dunster Happ and Bell flower earning the new right as the North Wind. Darien is jealous and tries to attack Winter, forcing her to cast a giant wind at him, sending him flying. As Bufkin is saying his last words, the executioner pulls the lever presumably killing Bufkin.
