Staring up at the worn sign, with “The Renaissance Faire of Etheria” written across it in faded Ye Olde Font, Catra wonders if it’s not too late to turn around and head back into Scorpia’s car.

It's been five weeks since she started this quest to find Adora and bring her home, and there's only one place she hasn't looked: Beast Island.
