#4. Death Omen

Get it while it's hot!! Fresh meat!!
We got everything you want! Chicken, beef, pork, you name it!
You never know when you need it,
so you should take this powder.
We use the most accurate ingredients possible!
Eh? Doesn't it smell good? This is the freshest tea!
It's so good, miss!
My, that sure is tasty. And so much sugar!
It's flammable, so watch out!
Nah, just handle it like you would gasoline!
This is bad for my health.
Walking through town like this with an atomic bomb...
No...that's not entirely accurate.
Even an atomic bomb wouldn't hold a grudge against the entire human race.
To him...
it's like drowning in a sea of maggots.

I wonder what would happen if he decided to let go right now?
The very thought...EXCITES me.
Narration: As we slept, we fell onto this rock. In order to keep living...we could do nothing but deplete the scarce resources of the desolate wasteland.

And then, one day...he came to me,
on a quiet, moonlit night.
Who is it?
What...what are you doing there?
Hey, somebody--

I recognized him, somehow.
He was the boy...
who survived the Big Fall.
You're all right...

I've finally found you...the Count, Revnant Vasquez!!
Also known as...
Crewman Bill Conrad!!
You really have used your plant expertise to make a nice life for yourself.
That's simply fantastic.
starting today, you'll have to throw this all away.
I need your brain...and I need it NOW.
Those eyes of his...
Is this really...Knives?

Is this the first time you've seen so many together?
This was the central reactor of the Plant ship.
Now it's the lifeline of these people.

Follow me.
Her pulse is growing weaker.
I could feel an indescribable fear.
I also felt...an obligation.
Truthfully, though, more than anything else, it was my curiosity about the autonomous lant that drove me to continue onwards.

I felt like I was dreaming.
The power to change the world...
with a consciousness and will of its own.
That, though...
...soon brought us to catastrophe.
There's no doubt that the swarm of disappearances around our planet were caused by him.
I can't deny it...I assisted the devil.
This is it.

It is breathing its last breaths...
To Knives, this must seem like nothing more than cruel exploitation.
Hey! What are you guys doin' there?
This is a restricted sector!

Can you heal her, doctor?
It might be difficult...there is severe tissue damage.
Who let you guys in!?
You need to leave at once!!
If you don't...
My legs..they won't move!!
Shut up.
You're making her suffer even more.

I get it now...you're one of THEM.
You're part of a Plant-worshipping cult, right?
Trust me, I understand how you feel.
When you see there inner form...it seems holy.
On the other hand, though, you have to think seriously.
Without "her" power, we would all die here.
You would die, too.
Anyway, you'd better leave.
This is probably gonna be its last run...
Not something you'd wanna stick around and watch.
Knives, let's go!
What's wrong, doctor? You seem uneasy.
Please...I'm begging you!! Let's leave!!
Last run...?
What exactly is that?
It'll be retired.
We have to try and use all the energy we can from it, though, before it goes completely dry.

It's starting!!
The last run.

When Plants reach their final stages, and they are of no more use...
They deliberately go out of control...
for one last huge energy generation.

Please forgive us...

It has begun...

Looks like your hair has begun to darken.
It's all downhill from here, Knives...
What do you mean?
You've exhausted your maximum capabilities, and your decline as an organism has begun.
Just like her.

If you continue to use this power,
all of your hair will turn black...
and your body will break down completely.
In other words...
you'll die.
You predicted this..
damn you,
If I hadn't, how would I have been able to stop it?
This is the only option for a lowly human like me.
If you abuse that power of yours any more,
You'll become a life-form even below that of a human.
I'll stay at your side, so...
why not just end this already?
Answer me.

Has Vash's hair...
begun darkening yet?
It has.
