-At the base, they discuss potentially killing Belial and/or Sahashradala and how this might be accomplished. Ezra proposes moving to an alternate Earth where things are better. An ambush is set for Belial at the lot of an abandoned industrial facility. The Book of the Sanguine Night is offered as bait. Belial, Nina and Montgomery arrive with Victor Daleschenko (Rosa'​s boyfriend from the CCEHV) in their car.

-Another car arrives with Ariel Tamanaka and Brenna Youngblood who have heard about the book being exchanged, and wanting it. Brenna uses her TK to grab the book, at which point Ezra sets off it's booby-trap. A vortex starts, and Ariel thinks quick and tosses the book to Belial. He, Nina and Montgomery are sucked into the portal (which presumably leads to the Dimension of the Black Chamber). Ariel detects Ezra, and everybody opens fire. Brenna tries to hold off the hail of lead while Ariel attempts to summon the Morrigan. They are both slain. The portal bringing in the Morrigan is complete, however, and they have to dispatch it back to it's hell. They attempt to figure out a way to prevent it from going back, but cannot manage to do so. +Belial, Nina and Montgomery arrive with Victor Daleschenko (Rosa'​s boyfriend from the CCEHV) in their car.

 On the way, they stop at Brady'​s store, and find a starving Sinclair there amidst the shelves.

 She directs them to Brady'​s parent'​s house, and he emerges and tries to get them to leave. They enter the house where they discover four kids sitting around a grisly pile of skulls in the living room, arranged as a shrine. Leo shoots Brady in the knee in anger, afterwards applying first aid.

 At the farm, they orchestrate an attack on the Fauth using explosives and Brenna'​s hover bike (the empaths, including Wangarten preventing it from taking people over), which is successful. ​ At the farm, they orchestrate an attack on the Fauth using explosives and Brenna'​s hover bike (the empaths, including Wangarten preventing it from taking people over), which is successful. ​

 Having contacted Delphine to see if she knows an empath who can heal minds, they meet Byron Delgado at her book store. He agrees to help in exchange for a supply of blue lotus other than coke. He lets Doreen scan him, and she notes that Byron has had dealings with Mr. Montgomery a while back (who was sucked into the DBC in events above). ​ Having contacted Delphine to see if she knows an empath who can heal minds, they meet Byron Delgado at her book store.

 +==== Getting Together ====
  
 Mai returns to the Citadel and relates her tale, including the fact that she left the elf kids Ovil and Seena at the farm with Faith and Loris (and the kids they'​re in charge of, Cherry and Ike). She shows them the amulet she got, and tells them about the "​Pale"​ being called Viktoria, and related how the changeling they were after had offered information about Sahasradala. Including a ward that one could use to stop Sahasradala from having an effect on them (which she couldn'​t obtain, because she and B3 had to dispatch the changeling). ​ Mai returns to the Citadel and relates her tale, including the fact that she left the elf kids Ovil and Seena at the farm with Faith and Loris (and the kids they'​re in charge of, Cherry and Ike).

 As they drink elf whiskey, Dr. Wangarten arrives. Wangarten sees the mirrors in the foyer and warns that having the mirrors, especially arranged as they are across from each other, is very dangerous, as this constitutes a portal to a mirror dimension. Which he claims is a "​nasty"​ place. ​ As they drink elf whiskey, Dr. Wangarten arrives.

 +==== Deals and Plotting ====
  
 Wangarten goes aside with Mai, and admits he needs any drained crystals she has so he can refill them (the crystals apparently being rare). Mai admits she's been eating them, which exasperates Wangarten, who tells her that's unnecessary. He says that getting more is hard now, because the Fae are tense for some reason (which is Mai). Mai mentions meeting Viktoria, and Wangarten is surprised she's not still on the moon. There was some astrological thing she was supposed to have been up there for.  Wangarten goes aside with Mai, and admits he needs any drained crystals she has so he can refill them (the crystals apparently being rare).

 In the hall, Delphine and Ezra have been scheming up a way to get rid of Wangarten. Delphine says she has a book with a sorcerous ritual in it that can banish fae creatures back to their realm. Ezra dismisses this as not permanent enough, and indicates he wants to kill Wangarten. ​ In the hall, Delphine and Ezra have been scheming up a way to get rid of Wangarten.

 +==== Disaster Awaits ====
  
 As these things go on, an empathically buzzy feeling thing is occurring in the background, faint but growing. Wangarten admits that he can't feel it, that it's a human thing. And that elves can't live off of feelings of human joy or the like.  As these things go on, an empathically buzzy feeling thing is occurring in the background, faint but growing.
