Back at the Connor Compound, Sarah comforts a dying Derek, while Cameron sits at the table. Sarah's voiceover brings it right back around to the chess theme, and the whole chess tournament seems a million years ago at this point. She says the main difference between chess and war is that the rules of chess are constant. I would add that war also consists of people actually killing each other instead of just pushing pieces around a board. ["Seriously! I would not trust her as my ally in war. Or chess." -- Miss Alli] "You will never win the heart of a rook or the mind of a knight. They are deaf to your arguments. And so be it." At the table, Cameron picks up the broken pencil and starts writing. Sarah keeps blah-blahing about chess. Thankfully, the voiceover gets interrupted when Derek stops breathing. Oh, wait. That's bad.
Fortunately, just at that moment, John runs into the house, followed closely by Charley. He and Sarah stand and stare at each other for about five hours before Charley checks on the DYING GUY ON THE TABLE. If Derek doesn't make it, I hope that smouldering glance was worth it, you guys.
