Cerebus is seen holding on to the spinning tower: gritting his teeth, grimacing and holding the sphere with his right arm. He loses his grasp on the tower and opens his eyes to realize that he is just sitting inside the tower. He looks to his left and sees the city of Iest below him. He gets scared that he is sitting so close to the edge and runs further into the tower, but then realizes that he left the golden sphere by the edge. He crawls back and tries to get it with the tips of his fingers as his eyes are closed. He opens his eyes to see he has the sphere in his hand, but also the city of Iest is right below him. His eyes are wide open at this sight, and he turns and starts to walk to the other opening of the tower.
He starts bouncing the golden sphere in his right hand, looking around the tower. He sees a head that looks like Weisshaupt and he thinks of the note from issue 101. He turns and backs into a even larger head sticking out that looks like Weisshaupt and he thinks of the golden sphere. Cerebus starts to run away from the head and trips over another smaller Weisshaupt looking head. His foot hurts and he starts hopping on his right foot. He gets tired and sits down. While he is sitting, another Weisshaupt looking head falls on his left foot.
