Cut to another part of town and Armony Eiselstein is returning home from surreptitiously practicing alchemy which her father, Professor Wilhelm Eiselstein, has forbidden her to do.

Meanwhile the officer apprehended by Colonel Bresslau has avowed that he's done nothing nor knows anything. The colonel believes him, but wants him to hide out in New Heissgart while he proves the officers innocence.
