Synopsis for "Into the Dark Side"
Atop a mountain, the Spectre declares that there is no honesty in the hearts of men. In his fury, he blows apart the top of the mountain. He decides he will confront the heart of evil and then render his judgment on humanity.
In New York City, the Phantom Stranger visits Madame Xanadu's parlor and asks her to join him in his mission to stop the Spectre. Xanadu insults him by saying his plan won't work. After the Phantom Stranger leaves, Madame Xanadu decides to convince the others that they must work together.
The Spectre enters Eclipso's palace on the moon. Eclipso urges the Spectre to wipe creation clean and begin again. Then, Eclipso takes over the Spectre's body.
On Earth, the Phantom Stranger gathers with the Demon, Doctor Fate, and Zatanna. The Phantom Stranger has a black diamond that he intends to use against Eclipso or the Spectre -- whoever survives. But then he looks up at the moon and sees that the Spectre has been taken over by Eclipso.
The Phantom Stranger and the others form a shield around the black diamond so that Eclipso cannot shatter it. But Eclipso, joined with the Spectre, manages to shatter the diamond, enabling Eclipso to walk the earth once more. The "eclipsed" Spectre has his way with the Demon, Zatanna, Doctor Fate, and the Phantom Stranger.
Meanwhile, at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Ramban and Father Craemer discuss the Spectre. Father Craemer believes the key is Jim Corrigan. Madame Xanadu appears at the door and asks to speak with them.
As they are walking through Central Park, Madame Xanadu suggests that they summon Corrigan without the Spectre persona. It will be up to Father Craemer to reach his soul. They're able to summon Corrigan's soul, which leaves Eclipso in complete control of the Spectre.
