Some context: we have 2 classes of people: Masters and the Beast Folks. The Masters made themselves out to be immortal, but recently a Master was killed by a Beast Folk, at the cost of his life.

Which brings us to the part in bold. Does that mean the Beast Folk now know Masters can be killed just like themselves, or that they could kill the Masters, even if it means trading their lives in the process?

It means that the Beast Folk now understand that the Masters are as vulnerable to death as the Beast Folk are.

"Make it go away, Mrs Whatsit," he whispered. "Make it go away. It's evil."
