An elderly soothsayer adds to the tension, prophesying that a plague of demons is about to descend upon the earth. Wondering what the old woman hopes to gain, Oric attempts to calm the terrified locals. Ignoring his advice, gentry, tradespeople, and peasants, leave their homes in droves.
The situation rapidly worsens, and Oric battles to save all that he holds most dear.
