I met Death today. We are playing chess.
Block: Black for you!
Death: It becomes me well.
Block and Jöns visit a church where a fresco of the Danse Macabre is being painted and the squire chides the artist for colluding in the ideological fervour that led to the crusade. In the confessional, Block admits that he wants to perform "one meaningful deed". Upon revealing to the priest the chess strategy that will save his life, the knight discovers that it is Death to whom he is speaking. Leaving the church, the knight speaks to a young woman condemned to be burned at the stake for consorting with the devil. He believes she will tell him about life beyond death, only to find that she is insane.
