The Toa Maiden and party converse with Pattonua

The expedition looks on while they talk.

And talk.

And keep right on talking.

Wide shot of the conversation. Pattonua thinks the Napura clones — and their Boxors — should join the expedition. The Toa Maiden expresses her sympathy but she says that it is up to them. They briefly consider the matter.
