Later that afternoon, on the road to Stratholme...


The interlude features Prince Arthas running along the road, where the Prophet accosts him.



Arthas runs through the forest. The Prophet awaits him near the road.
IconSmall Medivh.gif The Prophet: Greetings, young prince. We must talk.
IconSmall Arthas.gif Arthas: I have no time for this!
IconSmall Medivh.gif The Prophet: Listen to me, boy. This land is lost! The shadow has already fallen, and nothing you do will deter it. If you truly wish to save your people, lead them across the sea... to the west.
IconSmall Arthas.gif Arthas: Flee? My place is here, and my only course is to defend my people!
IconSmall Medivh.gif The Prophet: Then your choice is already made. Just remember, the harder you strive to slay your enemies, the faster you'll deliver your people right into their hands.
The Prophet transforms into a raven and flies away. Jaina, under an invisibility spell, runs down the road towards Arthas.
IconSmall Jaina.gif Jaina: I'm sorry for concealing myself, Arthas. I just wanted to--
IconSmall Arthas.gif Arthas: Don't say it!
IconSmall Jaina.gif Jaina: I sensed tremendous power about him, Arthas. Maybe he's right. Maybe he does know what will happen.
IconSmall Arthas.gif Arthas: Nothing he can say will make me abandon my homeland, Jaina. I don't care if that madman has seen the future. Let's go.
Arthas and Jaina run down the road. The interlude ends.
