- In the meantime, June prepares for Metias's funeral. Apparently in the new Republic, everyone wears white at funerals. How odd.
- June wears an elaborate, fancy dress to the funeral and goes around greeting well-wishers, including Thomas, who tells her that she looks really beautiful.
- She also runs into a man named Chian who oversees all the Trials in Los Angeles. He's someone that Metias didn't even like.
- Apparently Metias had asked to be reassigned because he didn't want to work on the Trials anymore. June also finds out that Chian has a huge scar on his face because of Day.
- Thomas tells June that they're going to hunt Day down and make him pay, and June agrees that they just have to get it over with.
