So Valerie heads back to her mansion with her party of Aveline, Merrill and Anders, but Anders isn't very happy to see Merrill turning up in his fuckpad.
So Anders gets Merrill out of the house and starts complaining about Valerie letting the poors in.
Anyway, after their torrid lovemaking, Hawke hooks up with Merrill and Fenris and we're off to the races to track down some trash mobs to kill and plot items to fetch. Not content to intellectually devastate Aveline, Anders decides it's time to find out Fenris's opinions on Meredith as well.
Suddenly, Valerie is stopped by a random passer-by.
