They pursue the creature that shot Kallas into the forest. They encounter a goblin druid, Kibs, and a talking fox along the path. They lose the trail, but tell Kibs about the incident with Zenith Othos being murdered and Kallas being attacked. They are ambushed by drow, and Kibs and the fox, who turns out to be the druid Cordata, help fight. Kallas knocks out the last drow and the party is attacked by creatures with the upper bodies of drow and the lower bodies of spiders (driders), who say that Lolth will judge them. The party runs, taking the unconscious drow with them. While preparing to question the drow, Cam gets into an argument with Kibs, resulting in Kibs and Cordata taking Zenith's body back to Silver Strings, leaving the party and the drow. Cam tortures the drow and Cyrus and Brenna attempt to talk to her, learning nothing except that she did kill Zenith. After a lengthy debate, they decide to go back to Silver Strings, where they will likely need to prove their innocence in Zenith's death.
Kibs: Okay, we have one rule here: Don't be an asshole. Everybody has assholes but doesn't mean you have to be one.

- Kyle's character makes a good javelin toss, inspiring the episode's title as a callback to episode 039.
- Cordata is a character borrowed from the podcast Roll Like a Girl.
