After the Espers came and pretty much kicked Gestahl’s ass, he throws together a hasty peace accord (which he expects you to send out the invitations for). Kefka is thrown in jail, everyone has some really good ice cream, and the game ends on a happy note.
Ha! Nope, just kidding. It’s time to go waste time out in Thamasa for a while in one of my least favorite segments of the game (it introduces Strago, so can I be blamed?). You make contact with the espers and they agree to kill Strago and the game ends on a happy note.
Wait, no. Actually Kefka shows up and kills everyone (including, yes, the aforementioned Leo fight). It’s kind of badass.
