SpoilerSorry. I'm really having trouble envisioning the physical setup right now, and had somehow assumed that I wasn't close enough to know what was going on with Gneiss.
"All right, then. Can I have two volunteers to help guide us to the children and men, and then can the rest of you get a move on down that hallway? And take Elistan with you."
As soon as the women stop dragging their heels and get safely to the escape tunnel, Pearl marshalls whoever is still with her, and jogs off to respond to Gneiss' summons.
