Jagger takes off his mask and says wrath is a manipulative state. Negativity affects the personal and social wellbeing. To be truly healthy you must know how to control it. Love brings love. The Schism only builds stronger together as a unit.
Joe says there are people in the world who you think have everything they want but are lost inside. Rip and Jagger learned the path to unity comes from showing their true self. It is time to take your next step. To sit under the Shism’s tree, you must do the same and reveal your true self. Remember there is no going back.
The person takes off their hoodie and mask to reveal herself. The love and acceptance the Schism has given her has removed any preconceived notion of who she is. This family completes her. She is Ava Reign (The Rock’s Daughter).
Joe says four roots… one tree.
