Synopsis for "The Demon"
Jason Blood broods in his lofty apartment, dwelling on his internal struggle with the Demon, Etrigan. Glenda interrupts his thoughts, calling him to the telephone. Once more, the same desperate woman that has been hounding him pleads with the former demonologist to help her possessed son. Jason again refers her to a priest, but she exclaims the last one was taken away in a straight jacket. Jason hangs up on the woman, but not without sympathy. He stews angrily, thinking of all the harm that has come to him, as well as his friends, Randu and Harry, from consorting with demons. Glenda consoles him, telling him that he knows better than anyone what a burden being possessed is, and asks him if really wishes that burden upon a child.
Without an address, Jason locates the woman's home from the sheer stench of demonic influence alone. The woman leads him upstairs to her son Jack's room, the walls of which have been damaged and defiled. She approaches to wake her sleeping boy, who turns and hisses insults at the woman, insisting his name is Malefik. Jason guides her out of the room and prepares for the exorcism, ignoring the petulant child's goading remarks. His ritual effectively casts out the entity, but fails to banish it, as Malefik materialises before him and attacks.
Back in Jason's apartment, Randu is jolted by a psychic flash of danger, and Glenda wonders if she was right to persuade Jason to help. She picks up the powerless Philosopher's Stone on display, wishing it wasn't inert so she could aid him, when the stone unexpectedly glows with the image of Morgaine le Fey.
Reluctantly, but with no other means to save himself, Jason recites the spell to release Etrigan. Malefik recoils in fear to see a Rhymer now standing in place of the mortal, and tries to assure his fellow demon they have no quarrel. Etrigan on the other hand hungers, and roasts Malefik in a burst of Hellfire, before cannibalising him greedily. Still not sated, Etrigan turns to the young Jack huddled terrified in his bed...
