Before the Curse
Boq pays the ultimate price. ("Our Decay")
Zelena, the Wicked Witch of the West, has arrived at one of the munchkin villages. Still holding her flying broomstick, she paces back and forth before the terrified munchkins; she confronts them for tipping off Dorothy that she was still alive. As she nears the small men, she states that, since they're so fond of tattling, she'll give them the chance to make it up to her; she demands to know where she can find the Scarecrow. They all gasp, jumping back in fear as the Wicked Witch gets in the face of one particular munchkin. "We don't know," he exclaims, trembling, "we swear." "Fine, have it your way," the Witch says to the munchkin, Boq, before exploding him in a puff of smoke. This results in the gasps of all the surrounding munchkins, who jump back further, in fear. "Did that loosen your bearded lips?" she asks them, staring each of them down, giving them the alternative of becoming a pile of ash as well. Before any further havoc is reeked by the Wicked Witch though, Hades, Lord of the Underworld has come to strike up an alliance with her, sending the remaining munchkins into hiding. ("Our Decay")
