Synopsis for The Demon, Part III: "The Road to Hell"
At Gotham City Airport, Randu does his very best to dissuade Glenda from following Jason Blood, but she is determined to help. The customs officer is curious as to why she would want to take a rock to England with her, but lets Glenda through. Glenda explains to Randu how she feels that she needs to be there, and Randu admits he, too, feels his fate is intertwined with his friend Jason's.
Across the Atlantic in Wiltshire, the demonic rider that erupted from Silbury Hill intercepts Jason's rental car and brings his warhammer down on the driver's side. The vehicle swerves into a telephone pole and the Hell-born warrior rips the car open as if it were made of paper. The fiend raises his warhammer aloft for the finishing blow, but it slams into Etrigan instead, summoned by a desperate Blood at the last second. Etrigan relishes the pain he's been dealt, but will not let the gesture go unanswered for. He dismounts the rider by punching his steed, then melts the assailants face in a burst of Hellfire. Etrigan continues to burn the creature's skull until it crumbles in his hands, and he spreads the ashes back to the "Earthmother" who spawned it. The horse dematerialises with its owner's death, leaving Etrigan to check on his keeper. Slumped unconscious over the steering wheel, Jason's head wound is fingered by Etrigan, tasting the very blood that cages him. But without his host, he would perish also, and so Etrigan recites the verse to confine him in his mortal prison once more. Jason awakens, healed by Etrigan's presence, and hitches a ride with a truck driver to Tintagel.
These exploits do not go unnoticed, for in the bowels of Hell, Asteroth watches Etrigan's movements with malevolent glee, providing a commentary for his prisoner, Merlin, suspended above a chalice by eldritch hawthorn. The thorns dig into the helpless sorcerer's flesh, his ancient power bleeding from him, with every crimson drop funnelling into the goblet. Asteroth takes the cup of blood and drinks the essence of the world's greatest wizard, before spying on the progress of Blood's friends.
Glenda is stopped by customs at London Heathrow Airport, once more regarding the Philosopher's Stone, which his now glowing. The security officer suspects it to be radioactive, but Randu uses his psychic powers to implant a mental suggestion in the man's mind, and he lets them continue. Glenda looks into the Stone and sees the image of a haggard witch.
