ETD: Three days.
Manager Marjolaine: The results of the Go Fish tournament mean Pine will take the first ride up.
Assuming there are no technical difficulties . . .
. . . we’ll send the sickest people up next, followed by the rest of — Arnulf! Why are you putting my name second on the list?
Arnulf: Because you’re the shift manager.
Marjolaine: That’s why I get to go last.
And here we see the differences between Sonska and Ceannic command structures.

Leif is gonna hear about this and it’s gonna blow his enslaved little mind and he’ll start thinking revolutionary thoughts and it’s gonna be awesome.
I hope it does not literally blow his mind. That might be possible given the magic we’ve seen.
Actually, the first thing up should be a load of crap – something you don’t mind losing if there are “technical difficulties”.
But if the manager knows the crew won’t stand for any delays, maybe losing Pine is an acceptable risk…
That last sentence rings as “I have the privilege to go up last, and watch each of my crew reach safety first.”
as it should be.
Now THAT’S how a manager should behave.
