Full Details

Rom faces two knights of the Solstar Order, Livia and Orphion, including a superior officer, as he tries to protect his human ally Camilla from them. Rom tries to talk to the two knights but they are focused on destroying the Wraith. Rom paralyzes Camilla and the Wraith so they cannot move.The Wraith moves underground mostly out of Camilla and finds another human victim, the soldier who is waking up nearby. Livia shoots at Camilla blowing her arm off and severing the connection to the ground.

The Wraith, now in a new body, sprouts wings and attacks the Space Knights from above. Rom says the knights have been holding back their stored energy against one another but will spare nothing for the Wraith.Livia and Orphion slowly come to realize that Camilla is more than just another Wraith shell. Orphion says he will grant her mercy.

In Rhode Island Darby has sought refuge with her grandmother. Her grandmother comforts her and says no story is crazy after the giant robots became public. Darby is still having difficulty dealing with the situation at hand. She runs to the basement and slinks herself into a corner in a fetal position.

Northern California, Beach Head and Grunt break into the armory to gather weapons to face Rom.

Rom and Livia discuss their prior relationship as they fight the flying Wraith. Rom attacks the magical shields as Livia fires a light missile at the beast. Orphion fires his arrow at Camilla. Not knowing the human anatomy, his arrow drives the Wraith out of her but may have hurt her in the process. Rom cradles her. Orphion says that the Wraith have overrun Earth and that the knights have been sent to destroy the planet.

Countdown, Dave Dubosky, meets with a Wraith in the body of an older man. He says that for over two centuries “She” has been growing more powerful.

Three knights think they have come to destroy the Wraiths but they have walked into the gates of Hell itself.
