Synopsis for The Demon, Part VI: "Welcome to Hell"

Jason Blood hurls the severed hand of Morgan le Fay, which strikes her on the head. Infuriated by the insulting act, she fires a magical blast at the insolent mortal running towards her with an improvised club. The sorceress tortures Blood, turning her back on Etrigan enveloped in rock. The Demon shatters his constraints to le Fay's shock, and leaps towards her, grabbing hold of her wrists and breathing Hellfire directly into her face, killing her.

In Hell, Asteroth's bath is disturbed as the pain of Morgan le Fay's death echoes through him. He curses Etrigan for dispatching his resurrected witch with whom he lent his power. Once dressed in his ceremonial robes and primped by his manservant, Lurgo, Asteroth dismisses the loss of his pawn, knowing Etrigan will soon follow the breadcrumbs that will lead his last two victims to his five-way blood sacrifice. He torments Merlin, still suspended helplessly from the hawthorn, before sending Lurgo of to meet his first arriving guests, while he spies on the last two remaining on Earth.

Etrigan scolds Jason for risking his life when the Demon was allowing Morgan le Fay to exhaust her power, while he discovered the source of her new-found strength. Though he cannot discern motive, Etrigan can trace the source back to Hell, and the Arch-Duke Asteroth. Jason wonders what the demon Asteroth could possibly want with him, and Etrigan, eating le Fay's corpse, repeats that he does not know Asteroth's plans, only that he has lured Glenda and Randu into the Inferno. Jason is incredulous. He specifically told his friends to remain in Gotham City, and walks away from Etrigan, believing it to be more lies and schemes. The Demon is apathetic to Jason's decision, but reminds him of Harry, who's death weighs heavily on Jason's conscience. Not willing to risk the same fate for his other close friends, Jason asks his Demon to show him the way.

As Glenda leads Randu down the murky staircase, the mist begins to clear towards the bottom, revealing a lake of tormented souls begging for mercy. They make their way through the damned via a narrow pathway, until Glenda succumbs to the horrible pleading and tries to aid one of the desperate dead, only pulling her and Randu into the mire.

Jason hitches another ride to Glastonbury Tor, an ancient mound of chalk attempting to dampen the powerful centre of earth-power, hiding a doorway to the unknown. With the correct ritual, Jason's pentacle transports him to the dark depths of depravity.

Asteroth applauds enthusiastically, now that all his pawns are in place. He unveils his five-way sacrificial alter, knowing the power to rule all of Hell is close at hand.
