This monastery on Lethe is a repurposed set: It's an idyllic setting now, but it used to be a Westerly prison during Season 1.

An important new headquarters on Westerly has holographic views of Lethe's forest in place of windows. The same segment of the set can be repurposed as a hallway, offices and more.
