We Don’t Eat | James Vincent McMorrow
Scene I - Wendy’s birthday
Begins with Wendy alone in the piano room, plinking softly at the keys. The melody she picks out is a heavily simplified version of the song We Don’t Eat by James Vincent McMorrow. As a figure enters the room, her hands jerk and she stops playing. The figure is revealed to be Lorelei, and when Wendy reveals the fact it is her eighteenth birthday, Lorelei sits down at the piano and the two women begin to speak properly with each other for the first time. Meanwhile, the studio version of We Don’t Eat begins to play very softly in the background, and the girls’ talk turns to the piano, and Wendy teaches Lorelei how to play the song.
Scene II - Friends
The intro to the song plays softly as Wendy sits on the windowsill of a huge bay window, sipping lemonade and reading a book, obviously pregnant. In a parallel to their first meeting, Lorelei stumbles across Wendy. The German girl is obviously still torn up from Rafael’s death—dark circles, weight loss and messy hair. Wendy invites her to sit and the two begin to discuss loss. Wendy reveals her pregnancy to Lorelei, along with stories of Ben, and Sullivan. She and Lorelei begin to talk more seriously, of coping with the loss of their loved ones.
“I guess all we can do it hope it gets better.”
The song reaches a crescendo and Wendy reaches across the windowsill to pull Lorelei into a hug. The scene fades with the music.
So if in the future, I might need myself a saviour, I’ll remember what was written on that wall.
Scene III - Wendy’s death
After Wendy’s death, we see Lorelei, stumbling out of her room, wrapping a cardigan around her thin frame. She’s heard the screams and the cries, and she’s terrified. Suddenly she’s running, flying through the halls, and stops when she sees a streak of blood on the floor, her hand flying to her mouth. The song begins to play again. Slowly this time, almost as if in slow motion, Lorelei follows the blood splatters to the infirmary, and when she sees Arabella outside, she knows. The song reaches its crescendo as Lorelei bursts into the hospital, shouting and screaming and demanding to see her. The guards gently move Lorelei back into the corridor, where she sinks down next to Ari.
"Yeah. She’s gone."
If this is redemption, why do I bother at all. There’s nothing to mention, and nothing has changed. Still, I’d rather be working at something, than praying for the rain. So I wander on, ‘til someone else is saved.
Iscariot Walk the Moon
The intro bit plays as it shows Wendy in her room on the floor wrapped in her blankets. It shows the vision she had that told her Sully was truly gone. It goes back to the present, then back to her smashing things, alternating between flashbacks and the present.
I never imagined you dead
At that point, she feels the pain from the baby, and in sorta slow-motion, the music being the only sounds as it shows her trying to make it to the hospital wing.
That’s what you want, but it’s not what you’re asking for
Ari comes around the corner, thinking about her decision to leave, when suddenly she sees Wendy. She smiles at first, going to catch up but then sees her friend go down.
That’s what you want, but it’s not what you’re asking for
Slow motion, she runs to help Wendy, still the only sounds is the music and Ari is seen yelling to the guards for help. A blur of scenes follows next, and the flash of a face.
You know you had it coming my friend, my friend
You know you had it coming, my brother
It’s all shown as if through Wendy’s eyes, the face finally focusing and it’s Sully in the doorframe of the hospital room, watching and waiting. The baby’s in his arms and Wendy looks over to him and smiles slightly. The hand in hers is shown to be Ari’s, and she has a sudden hallucination of her next to Sully and the baby.
Her hand flexes in Ari’s, her pale fingers slowly relaxing afterwords, and she goes.
As the song fades out, it shows her pressing a kiss to Ari’s forehead as she sobs, before slowly walking towards Sully and the baby.
The episode ends.

The song starts and that’s when Char finally speaks again. Dante’s with her and they do their thing.
Meanwhile, it shows Julian getting in the car with Mina. Jo’s on her way to find Charlotte to talk with her as usual, when the news of who it is breaks. She runs to Char’s room and is who tells Dante and Charlotte that it’s over.
Lorelei is her next stop. “No,” she whispers as she hears the truth, staring blankly ahead with her arms wrapped around her legs. “Just like that, it’s over?” She gives a slight laugh in disbelief, relief flooding over her.

Wild light, glowing bright
At that moment, Amber vanishes. Kaya’s packing her bags, already having decided if Ari wasn’t going to be there, she needed to leave as well. Ana was to stay a couple of more weeks to look after Aiden and everyone, always a mother hen. But after a while, she would join them back in Scotland. Kaya’s phone rings, it shows the last name Bourbon on the caller-ID screen, and as she answers, a knock sounds on the door. Izzy is shown writing her letters.
The other royals are seen finding out, and at the end, as it fades out, it pans into the window where Lore and Wendy last spoke, Wendy seen sitting their looking more healthy than she had in her entire stay in Versailles. It quickly shows glimpses of everyone leaving, Seb and Kaya seen leaving. Char’s rusty voice is heard as it shows Wendy watching the departures,mouthing “Au revoir” as it all ends then goes to black.
I’m not quite there, but I’m on my way. I’m forgetting names and faces, I need to get away from this place, because my outlook’s changed along with how I speak, I’m really not the same as I used to be. I’m always living in my head and I can’t remember when I last felt alive.
Pass me that lovely little gun, my dear, my darling one. The cleaners are coming, one by one, you don’t even want to let them start.
I ran away: I could not take the burden of both me and you. It was too fast, casting love on me as if it was a spell I could not break, when it was a promise I could not make.
And so it is, just like you said it would be. Life goes easy on me, most of the time. The shorter story, no love no glory.
Snuff | Slipknot
Bury all your secrets in my skin.
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins.
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again…
So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can’t destroy what isn’t there.
