    Summary

    “Is that like, some kind of weird wizard patty-cake?” called Beau.

    It did look a bit funny, Caleb supposed: Essek with his hands poised over Caleb’s, not touching, a barely-visible barrier of arcane heat between them.

    “A very special game, just for us,” he replied. “It is called ‘not freezing your wizard fingers off’.”

    -

    (A small interlude at the end of episode 132, in which Essek is cold and Caleb ponders the properties of fire.)

    Summary

    ‘Essek,’ Caleb says, very quietly. ‘Are you telling me that you went into this fight convinced you would never get up if you went down?’

    Essek places a hand over the centre of his chest, the place where Lucien’s blade hit. The place where Jester’s diamond shattered. ‘Yes.’

    (In the battle with the Tombtakers, Essek falls. His friends bring him back. And each of them has a request to make of him.)

    Summary

    In the last fight with the Tombtakers, Essek Thelyss bends reality to keep them all alive and pays the price. As he copes with the aftereffects of his own magic and the party takes the long journey back to the surface, Essek and Caleb finally confront what they are to each other.

    or,

    Five times Essek woke up with level(s) of exhaustion and one time he didn't.

    Summary

    ‘I would not hurt any friends of yours, Beauregard.’

    ‘You already did.’ Beau gestures to the list of names, slowly crumpling in Essek’s fist. ‘So go meet them. See what you did, and decide whether you’re going to keep running from it.’

    (In which Essek encounters some other honorary members of the Mighty Nein, and comes to a decision.)
