At this point, Etrigan will grab her foot, say the incantation, and take HER prisoner in Hell!
Can Blood bring demons, devils, or lost souls back with him to Earth?
The self-serving nature of these companions might be their greatest strength.
Madame Xanadu's plot is revealed. She needed Jason Blood to gather the tears of an innocent from Hell. The power in this contradiction is enough for her to regain her powers and her young form and her supple boobies and her smooth legs and her tight and warm embrace.
Mmmm, previously old lady flesh.
Salt beats Serpent?!
Vandal changes sides again. I guess he isn't really changing sides as being on the side of Vandal Savage surviving at any cost.
Each companion soon finds himself overwhelmed. The Shining Knight is cut down with a dagger to his breast. Mordru plays Mindrip on Xanadu. Etrigan is stabbed while distracted by his concern for Xanadu. Al Jabr is overwhelmed by multiple foes. Savage is knocked unconscious by a large hammer. And the leader of the village cries.
The Shining Knight has not been killed (come on! None of them have been!) but is paralyzed by some poison in The Queen's blade. The only warrior left standing is Exoristos the Amazon. But she continues to defend the village and its innocents. She cannot help her companions. But then, she doesn't need to because The Horsewoman's cavalry arrives to save the burnt ruins and corpses of Spring Village!
That's the leader of the Alba Sarum army speaking. I guess it all depends on your point of view.
