In today's episode, chapter 25 picks up where last chapter's cliffhanger left off. Addie and Duc have just shared a joint at the edge of the woods and had a pretty deep conversation about Duc's Vietnamese grandfather and his secretive beliefs, so they're a little high and super relaxed and comfortable. But they've been interrupted by three very large men who are apparently stalking their abandoned campsite: pack hunting, like predators. Did Xenia betray them? Is Nate dead by now? There's no way to know, but Addie and Duc handle it in the best way they know how: by fleeing for their lives and hiding in the forest.
Except it doesn't work.
