The group then head off to the Rib Cage, the last place the pirates saw a human that resembled Cliff's soulself.

There he kills a totem, causing Maxine great pain and awakening Ellen to realize her daughter is missing. The remain Totems question what Brother Blood has done, but quickly learn that one of them has betrayed them all.
