When she leans down to grab her hatchet, she finds Wyatt’s bugle and demands some answers. Nina pops up and claims it is her bugle. She plays it to calm herself. Obrecht prompts her to play. That flubs. Obrecht notices her notebook is gone so Peter screams until she leaves to get antibiotics. Peter wonders why Nina covered for him. She doesn’t think Maxie wants him dead. He wonders if this means she’ll let him go and suggests this could be her last chance to save herself.
