Trigon then returns to his castle were the they use the cosmic cannon to destroy the planet Xynthia that refuses to bow to Trigon. After which he wonders if Earth will be destroyed this easily. While back in temple Azarath, Arella tells the story of her life as the Teen Titans urge the monks to at least get them to Trigon's world, which they show them the way. Arella leads on as the guide and takes them to Trigon's world. Upon arrival, Kid Flash starts to do a reconnaissance and immediately runs into Trigon and finds the Titans knocked unconscious. Arella frees Raven during the brief battle and flees with her. Trigon turns his world ablaze until the pain of the people is unbearable and Arella and Raven give themselves up and in an instant Trigon appears. Arella creates a diverson while Raven seeks out the Teen Titans. They are freed from one of Trigon's dungeon and quickly devise a plan that will prevent Trigon from entering Earth's dimension. With every member in unison, The Teen Titans weaken Trigon, the final blow coming as Cyborg connects to Koriand'r and gives him a high powered bolt that sends him into the netherverse which was opened up by Kid Flash.
