** The hot-air balloon scene in its entirety. Julia Rothman has unleashed a balloon with satellite dishes attached to it that will fire out beams which kill every schoolchild in London, and this includes Alex. So, he climbs up one of the ropes, and when he does get on the platform, he finds out that he can only knock out one of the satellites. It goes FromBadToWorse as Nile shows up and tries to kill Alex, with [[KatanasAreJustBetter twin katanas.]] Alex then puts two and two together and realizes that Nile has a fear of heights, so he attempts to bring up that fear long enough to take one of his swords and cut the propane flow of the balloon, '''and it causes Nile to simultaneously fall to his death and burn alive.''' After this, Julia gets crushed by the balloon's platform, and Alex hitches a ride back to Chelsea ''on the hot-air balloon.'' To recap: Alex stopped a genocide-to-be and killed TheBigBad and her [[TheDragon dragon]] with the use of a weapon that would have otherwise killed him... and then ''rode home'' using one of them. Fucking '''EPIC.'''
