Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West Volume 5, Part 15 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- Dorothy and company are approaching, so Elphaba sends out all her familiars to scope them out and guide them to the castle.
- Unfortunately, Dorothy and her companions misinterpret all these animals and end up killing the crows, the bees, and poor Killjoy.
- Nanny, Liir, and Elphaba watch the proceedings.
- Then Elphaba sees something awful:
"But it was true. There was nothing but straw and air inside the Scarecrow's clothes. No hidden lover returning, no last hope at salvation." (5.15.34)
- After losing all her animals, Elphaba finally sends her flying monkeys down to pick everyone up.
- Liir promises to protect Elphaba from being murdered, but he won't risk Dorothy to do it.
