Iantine plans to repay Telgar Weyr's kindness by making a gallery of all the inhabitants. At Fort Hold, a number of classes are held in preparation for the Second Pass: a first aid session is held at the College, and a ground crew drill is conducted outside Fort Hold. Since this is a violation of the Charter , the document from which Pernese law is derived, Paulin , Lord Holder of Fort Hold, plans to take action against Chalkin, and sends word to the other Lord Holders.
At Telgar Weyr, the Lilcamp trader train arrives, and Iantine sketches them, catching the eye of Debera. Iantine reveals a picture he drew of her and Morath, and he gifts it to her, before asking her to help him haggle with the traders so he can get supplies to draw the Weyr's inhabitants. Since the Weyrs are within their rights to act against this when a Hold can't, they plan to send dragonriders to Bitra Hold with supplies, and Paulin plans to visit Jamson and Azury to show them what's happening in Bitra. At Benden Weyr, Bridgely , the Lord Holder of Benden Hold , reports Chalkin has complained to him that Benden Weyr is not responding to his signals and are thus failing in their duty, plus they are interfering with his management.
Jamson doesn't believe the stories about Chalkin's border guards, but Azury does, and asks to see the refugees.

Followng this, they go to find Richud of Ista , the only Lord Holder not yet involved. With Iantine's pictures, Azury, Bridgely and M'shall return to High Reaches, but fail to convince Jamson, who thinks the stories have been exaggerated, and is unwilling to encroach on Chalkin's authority as Lord Holder. He sends them out, and they are escorted by Gallian , Jamson's eldest son who is also steward.
Gallian is aware of the situation in Bitra, and offers to do what he can to convince his father once he sees Iantine's pictures. They then travel to Fort Hold, where they talk with Paulin, who notes Gallian is essentially running High Reaches for the elderly Jamson these days. The rapists are sentenced to castration which the leader Morinst protests , and the murderers are banished to the Eastern Ring Islands.
Once the weather settles at Bitra, Chalkin protests against the outcome of the trials. The refugees are also returned to Bitra, although the dragonriders keep an eye on them to ensure Chalkin doesn't retaliate. At Telgar Weyr, the greenriders discuss their future prospect of relations, and how to deal with their dragon choosing a rider they don't like.
Jemmy has vague memories of an ancient solstice calendar, which Clisser identifies as Stonehenge on Earth. Bitra Hold is quickly infiltrated, and Chalkin is escorted from his bedchambers. As the Lord Holders discuss who could take over from Chalkin, it is revealed his uncle Vergerin has been hiding in the nearby Beasthold , aware Chalkin was looking for him to prevent him replacing him as Lord Holder.
Upon hearing this, Iantine uses the excuse of repainting Chalkin's portrait to spend more time at Telgar Weyr, hoping he will be able to form a relationship with Debera. As Turn's End draws near, Clisser takes Jemmy's plans to Kalvi , the Head Engineer the equivalent of Mastersmith , who confirms they will be able to build it.
During the Turn's End festivities, Iantine dances with Debera, before revealing his feelings for her, and leading her into a corridor and kissing her. The wings of Telgar Weyr split up and go to different areas, where they relax instead of checking on the Grubs. At Malay River , P'tero and M'leng take their dragons hunting, before sending them off so they can be alone together.
Despite this, the trip is a success; the grubs are found to have moved further across the Southern Continent , and the attack is seen as a good lesson to the dragonriders, showing them and their dragons that they aren't invulnerable. P'tero feels responsible for those who became injured, and also fears M'leng will no longer love him due to his scars, but M'leng confirms he loves him and tells him that he is not to blame for the accident.

While M'leng loves it, P'tero is saddened by the fact he has to be reminded of the worst day of his life. They plan to sneak to the ruined Landing and observe the fall. He angrily discusses this with Zulaya, who was aware of his injuries. The next day, K'vin and Zulaya travel to Landing to find that a large number of dragonriders have also secretly planned to observe Thread.
In addition to this, they plan to rotate their Wings , so that each Weyr will get a chance to fight Thread at the same time when it falls over the Northern Continent.
