But it was then, Vearn revealed his master plan to Dai, making everyone fall into utter despair, including Dai.
Vearn explained that even if Dai killed Vearn, he would not be able to save the world, as the doom of the world was inevitable. Vearn revealed that the reason he was fighting Dai and the other heroes wasn’t to stop them, but just to stall them for time.
He revealed the true purpose behind the five pillars that he had strategically placed across the world. All five pillars contained a Black Core capable of wiping out anything and everything around it, to the point even one of them could be fatal to life on the plane, and there were five of them.
And that was not all! As he further explains, there’s one more pillar of Vearn. Then the sixth pillar dropped on the world while Dai and his companions looked in despair, as it killed the people he considered his friends right in front of him.
