The Fremen must return to his original faith, to his genius in forming human communities; he must return to the past, where that lesson of survival was learned in the struggle with Arrakis. The only business of the Fremen should be that of opening his soul to the inner teachings. The worlds of the Imperium, the Landsraad and the CHOAM Confederacy have no message to give him. They will only rob him of his soul.
-The Preacher at Arrakeen

Jessica and Gurney arive at Arrakeen from Caladan and are greeted by Alia, Irulan and Stilgar. Jessica immediatly notices that Alia is using the forbidden Bene Gesserit anti-aging trick. We find out that before she even gets all the way off the ship's ramp she has an agenda. She raises her arms for a benediction and the people who were slow to kneel are weeded out or killed by Gurney's men. We learn that Jessica loves Gurney (what kind of love is not made clear) whom she is teaching Prana-Bindu, as if Gurney needed to be more dangerous. We meet Javid, one of the Priests, who is busy trying to rush Jessica of to a "Lustration" in Paul's old keep, which Jessica finally agrees to, thinking that Javid may eventually be an ally in the priesthood.
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.
