Clearly, something major has gone down. One minute Julian had agreed to an alliance and the next our heroes find themselves tied up. Did Alex and Noma discover something Julian preferred to keep hidden?
Alex: Julian promised us an army, so where is it? Noma: Maybe he lied. He doesn't have one. Riesen: No, he may be lying about the message to Vega, but he's telling the truth about the power of New Delphi. Somehow this city has defied Gabriel for 25 years. Something Vega couldn't do and we had Michael on our side. He has something formidable enough to keep them safe. Alex: Then I'm gonna find it.
Alex: You promised me an alliance; an army, but all I see as I look around is a scared city preparing for a siege. Julian: Well Alex you know, I'm gonna prepare my city first. Alex: What about Vega? You sent my message, did you hear anything back? Julian: No, it's going to take at least a week for our trucks to cross the wasteland. Alex: When we walked into this city, there were five trucks out front. There are still five there.
