  • IconSmall Arthas.gifArthas: I have no time for this.
  • IconSmall Medivh.gifThe Prophet: Listen to me, boy. This land is lost. The shadow has already fallen, and nothing you do will deter it. If you truly wish to save your people, lead them across the sea, to the west.
  • IconSmall Arthas.gifArthas: Flee? My place is here, and my only course is to defend my people!
  • IconSmall Medivh.gifThe Prophet: Then your choice is already made. Just remember, the harder you strive to slay your enemies, the faster you'll deliver your people right into their hands.
      The Prophet flies away. Jaina, under an invisibility spell, runs down the road towards Arthas.
  • IconSmall Jaina.gifJaina: I'm sorry for concealing myself, Arthas. I just wanted to--
  • IconSmall Jaina.gifJaina: I sensed tremendous power about him, Arthas. Maybe he's right. Maybe he DOES know what will happen.
  • IconSmall Arthas.gifArthas: Nothing he can say will make me abandon my homeland, Jaina. I don't care if that madman HAS seen the future. Let's go.
      Arthas and Jaina run down the road. The interlude ends.
