Over the course of the following few minutes, Brian continues presenting questions to Pablo. Much of what he asks concerns the work of Sombra, its assets, and weaknesses. When Brian finally shuts off the tape recorder and Klaus exits the room, the ka-tet has a short list of leads. First, they know that traveling to New York was King Grome's plan for them. Without knowing more, though, they can't say whether coming to the city was just the first important step on a path or if it was the site of a portal further down the rabbit hole. Second, they know that the Man in Black dragged the Beast to End World to train him and force him to help break the beams of the Tower. Yet again, finding a means to deal with this problem at present is somewhat elusive. Third, the Crimson King has a Centurion harvesting those strong with the Touch, like the Beast, as breakers. Fourth, the Red has been focusing their efforts on tracking down a writer named Michael Moorcock in Texas.
For the moment, it seems, the ka-tet has once again found itself working to protect the Tower rather than questing for its discovery.
