Richard's party suddenly meets the remaining members of Kahlan's order, who flee general Demmin Nass's troops to the coast to take refuge on a magically protected island to avoid extinction. To Kahlan's amazement it includes her presumed-dead sister Dennee, who very soon gives birth. Instead of the long-hoped new confessor, it's a boy, who by tradition must by ritually sacrificed out of fear he'll grow up as a mighty monster. Richard refuses to allow such cruelty and gets the confession-spellbound father Finn on his side, The order's mother resorts to confessing Zed to enforce execution, but Richard still puts up a formidable fight for innocent life.
