Maybe I'm missing something, but how does Saffron escape? Does that mean enter the combat zone?

The mechanic is on page 18 of the rules:

Escape
When an enemy with Escape enters the
Combat Zone, it immediately leaves the
game. Put it into the Defeated Cards space.
Also, if it has text after “Escape,” follow those
instructions when it escapes.

that's the only interpretation I can think of.
in Legendary (Marvel), the enemies "escape" once they move all the way through through the "City" (the Marvel equivalent of the "'Verse"), but the mechanics for Legendary are different than for Legendary Encounters (the cards come out of the deck face up so there is no need for scanning, but they start attacking right away)

Thank you! I don't think I've run into that before, so it was overlooked.

Is there any ruling on when the episode ends after Saffron has escaped? Does it end immediately when the other objective is achieved, or are you forced to continue until the Inevitable arrives since it is impossible to complete the Saffron objective?

The rules have this:
Rules p15 wrote:
Once each Objective in an Episode has been
completed or failed, the Episode immediately
ends.


So it hinges on whether Saffron's Escape counts as failure or not. It seems safe to assume it does.

It ends immediately after the other objective is completed, because the Saffron objective has failed. The rules state the episode is over after all objectives have succeeded or failed.
