Byleth finds Seteth and Flayn in the Holy Tomb, and Flayn theorizes that Rhea may have fallen into a coma just like Byleth did. The next day, Judith responds to the Resistance's request and agrees to meet them at Ailell, the Valley of Torment, to reinforce them. The group begins to prepare for the journey, unaware that an Imperial spy has witnessed the conversation. At the end of the month, the Resistance Army journeys to Ailell, but is ambushed by soldiers of House Rowe, one of the houses that betrayed Faerghus for Adrestia. The Resistance engages the traitors in battle, and is eventually reinforced by Judith. Together, they rout the enemy. Afterwards, Judith delivers the Alliance soldiers as promised. She gives the group a letter from Claude and reveals that Rhea was captured by the Empire after the Battle of Garreg Mach. After returning to the monastery, Seteth decides that they will capture the Great Bridge of Myrddin to gain a foothold in the Empire. Byleth reads Claude's letter; he offers to draw House Gloucester's Imperial loyalists away from the bridge so the Resistance can capture it, cutting Gloucester off from the Empire and allowing Claude to restore stability to the Alliance.
