away!
And do you enjoy the name?
It stirs up curious feelings.
You don't know who you are?
I know nothing of my past, sire.
How is this one trained?
It amused the Tleilaxu
to train him as a mentat.
I beg you, my lord!
Let me take its water.
Find quarters in the keep
for the ghola, Stil.
We accept this gift in the spirit
with which it was given.
Majesty, there is the matter
of Reverend Mother Mohiam.
She was removed from our highliner
by your agents...
in violation of our neutrality.
Be careful, Ambassador.
To be neutral is to be indifferent.
You would do well to disassociate
yourself from those who are not.
As you will learn, Edric,
my sister has the pulse of the court.
Be advised.
Reverend Mother.
I shudder to see you
in such circumstances.
I've been in worse.
Did the cards answer all your questions?
Answers only breed more questions.
What is important is how
one navigates between the two.
So, you haven't forgotten
everything we taught you.
Has the emperor explained
why I'm to be detained?
He has not confided in me,
Reverend Mother.
But I hope it won't be too long.
We understand.
The sisterhood is aware of my delay?
They have changed your schedule
in light of the situation.
I'll be patient then.
You seem to be adapting to life here
quite well.
I have made my peace with it.
I hope your training has been a help.
A comfort.
One day, even Muad'dib
will know the good you've done.
For us all.
Do you know how dangerous that was?
Eleven blades, Paul!
Eleven!
The finest swordsmen in the imperium
have not gone up against more than nine.
Experienced swordsmen would never
have been so reckless.
This is why you invaded my privacy?
To disapprove of my recklessness?
- A body was found in the desert.
- A young woman.
- A Fremen.
- Fremen?
Decapitated and her hands removed.
So someone was afraid she'd be found
before the desert does its work.
I want you to examine the scene
the way our mother taught us.
You will take the ghola mentat with you.
I assume you can handle him.
I should arrange a thopter.
Poisoned!
- How can you tell?
- The molting of the skin.
Clearly the effect of rapid
neurological atrophy.
A Tleilaxu specialty.
Tleilaxu? Face dancers.
This is a dead Fremen girl, my lady.
What if there are no women
reported missing amongst the Fremen?
Othyem's daughter, my lord.
- Lichna.
- It's been years since I've seen you.
And my father.
I must beg Muad'dib's forgiveness
for this intrusion, but...
I am the smoke who banishes sleep
in the night.
Sit.
Deliver your warning then.
You must visit my father...
as soon as possible, milord.
- There is a plot against you.
- There are many plots against me.
This is a Fremen plot.
My father has information for you.
But he's weak.
He's sick.
He needs you to visit
so he can tell you.
Why didn't he tell you
so you could tell me?
He feared I might be captured
before seeing you.
If I know nothing,
I can divulge nothing.
I leave for Othyem's tonight.
Othyem has missed... his old friend.
A face dancer.
- Good one too.
- Let me take its water.
No, Stil.
This must play out the way I've seen it.
Cursed be thy name, Atreides.
Your time has finally come.
The stoneburner is set and ready.
Let the others know
Muad'dib is in the streets.
Go.
So, you've come, then.
We meet again, Muad'dib.
Answering the call of the Fedaykin.
I carry your water burden, Othyem.
Command me.
I caught the spitting disease
in Tarahill.
- The tribe will take my water soon.
- Let me summon my doctors.
We've had doctors as good as any
Muad'dib could provide.
There's treachery, Muad'dib.
I'm ashamed to say it.
The Fremen plot against you.
They want time to stop.
They want things
the way they used to be.
Bijaz has told me their names.
He was a gift to me...
after our victories on Tarahill.
I am a person, not a gift.
Cheap to feed but costly to fill.
Empty me as you will, sire.
He always prattles on
