Kortan predicts this move and sends Arak to attack the fortressed city. Lancerlay feels the Buzz and assumes it is Kortan, but is relieved to find that it is Ramirez and the prophesied Highlander. As Arak tries to break into the gates, Lancerlay gives Quentin his Quickening, which incapacitates the attacking army.
