Screee! The car rushes toward them. Fifty-three minutes in. One totally crazy parking job later, the spy guys have arrived. Jake nano-hears Malik yelling at Anna, and then jumps four stories up, completely vertically, to the fire escape outside their apartment. It's a ridiculous leap, way beyond Wonder Woman leaping over a wall. The Man cocks an eyebrow, then heads for the stairs.
Jake bursts in the apartment and sees Malik and Anna wrestling. She's holding a knife. Jake pulls them apart, then shakes the knife out of her hand. He asks Malik if he's okay, but Malik just screams, "Let her go! Let her go! Let her go! Let her go! She was trying to kill herself, man! She couldn't kill me, so she tried to kill herself!" Jake looks at Anna, who trembles on the floor below him. He lets her go. Malik tries to hold her, saying, "It's going to be all right." She pushes him away, crying. "It's never going to be all right! It's been going on for three hundred years! We can't escape it!" Malik holds her, and Jake watches on in shock. Then Sir Ethics-a-Lot says, "She's right. You can't escape it. But you may be able to change it." You can chaaaii-yaange the woooo-rld!
Nightfall on our nation's capital. It's time for world news on NWN. Ooh, I wonder what's going on in Kembu? The blow-dried newscaster says that Prince Malik, earlier believed dead in a car bombing, has resurfaced, married to a Baako loyalist, and leading a newly formed coalition army to retake his country back from Baako. Shit, that's a really busy week! I wish I could manage my time as well as Malik. Jake reports to Witchay. She asks if he knew about this story. He says yes, he did. He "heard about it on the radio, it's really quite an amazing story." She says Malik might just be able to "reclaim his throne." He says, "The real question is, who are we going to back?" She says, "The winner, of course. Goodnight, Jake." And she moves off to be swallowed into the hallways of the NSA.
