Synopsis for "Fear the Reaper; or, This is the End, Beautiful Friends..."
Savant is being held by Kaizen Gamorra and he plans to make her his next wife. Meanwhile, Jodi deals with Kaizen's other slave girls while Nemesis battles Minotaur. After defeating Minotaur, Nemesis and Jodi bargain for Savant's life. Savant reluctantly agrees to do a 'show' for Kaizen and they let him keep the computer they used to hack his system. After the girls leave, Kaizen discovers the information that the world is going to end. He decides to prepare for it.
Savant is able to smuggle the information she got from Kaizen's database and they learn, with help from Spartan more about the program called Number of the Beast. They learn that there are several bunkers associated with the program and decide to infiltrate one.
Together with Zealot they find a warhead that contains a clone of the hero called The High (though the four don't recognize the clone's resemblance). They also see that there are many clones being produced and placed into warheads. The bunker defenses are alerted to their presence and they try to escape. One warhead is accidentally detonated and the girls are caught up in the blast.
Fearing Savant dead after the blast, Zealot accidentally calls Savant 'daughter' thus making Savant aware of the truth. After telling her companions to escape the bunker as she will destroy the facility to avert Armageddon by herself, Nemesis is engaged by a escaped High clone, known as a Reaper. Nemesis barely defeats the clone via decapitation and finds that it is about to go nuclear. As she prepares for the inevitable, Majestic swoops in and saves her. Their mission is over for now, with Jodi in Japan looking at a pet turtle shop and Savant confronting Zealot, Nemesis is unsure if anything they did is going to prevent the future she saw as she awakes from her sleep after dreaming a vision of the High clones encircling the Earth.
