Remark 111.34.9. The interpretation of the results of Exercise 111.34.7 and 111.34.8 is that given the morphism $X \to S$ all of whose fibres are nonempty, there exists a finite surjective morphism $S' \to S$ such that the base change $X_{S'} \to S'$ does have a section. This is not a general fact, but it holds if the base is the spectrum of a dedekind ring with finite residue fields at closed points, and the morphism $X \to S$ is flat with geometrically irreducible generic fibre. See Exercise 111.34.10 below for an example where it doesn't work.
