PANEL 1:
VEZ: If that isn't Kanan Jarrus with his little squad of mercenaries! And even with a young newcomer. Are you that desperate that you also recruit children?

KANAN: Don't worry about the kid, he can take care of himself. We don't have time for 
pleasantries, so let's get straight to business.

PANEL 2:
VEZ: Did you have another skirmish with the Empire?
HERA: Ask Kanan. It was his idea. Here's a list of the parts we need in order to repair the Ghost. The money is aboard our ship. If you name us your price, then...

PANEL 3:
VEZ: Normally I would be glad to help you, but this is not your lucky day. Since your last visit, the Empire inspects us twice as often and every time I have to make sure there weren'tany traces of you left.
HERA: Do I even want to hear what you're getting at?

PANEL 4:
VEZ: You don't. I could just as well hand you to the Empire and cash in the reward. But because we've known each other for so long, I'll give you one chance. We'll do a race through the Fools' Run [Note: I have no idea what the English script said for "Narrenlauf", this is my own translation of the German term]. If I win, I get your ship and you lose everything. If you win, you get your ship and the parts you need and you are free to leave.

PANEL 5:
VEZ [unseen]: What do you say?

RIGHT PAGE
PANEL 1:
ZEB: I'm gonna have a word with him.
KANAN: Not now, Zeb. Hera, you can't agree to this.

PANEL 2:
HERA: I believe I can, Kanan. I accept your offer, Vez. But lasers are off-limits. Agreed?
VEZ: Agreed. I knew you wouldn't say no. See you outside.

PANEL 3:
BLOCK: A few minutes later...
ZEB: You should have let me "talk" to him.
KANAN: If I had known that Hera would agree, I would have let you...
HERA: I had no choice. Vez threatened us all and you know he would have sold us out to the 
Empire for money. Even with the damaged ship I can beat him. I know I can.

PANEL 4:
EZRA: What is the Fools' Run?
SABINE: Vez's private racing track between the asteroids that form this plantet's rings. It is pretty hard.
EZRA: But Hera is a brilliant pilot. If someone can do it, it's her.

PANEL 5:
SABINE: Ezra, no one has ever beaten Vez on this track. Believe me, thousands have tried and all have failed.
