Synopsis for "Crimson Testament"
The renegade Lord of Order, Ynar, stands above Doctor Fate and reveals that he has abandoned the ranks of Order to make an alliance with Vandaemon, a renegade Lord of Chaos, just like him. The two of them determined that the eternal struggle between good and evil is pointless and both have decided to take all the power for their own purposes.
After this confession, Fate realizes that he was manipulated into giving the renegade Lords mystic energies that will allow them to destroy everything in their path. Fate falls into despair as he is absolutely helpless against the combined powers of Order and Chaos. It is then that Inza returns after leaving the Tower of Fate following her argument with Kent Nelson. Fate notices that Inza is not affected as the rest of the world is by the consuming mystical energies of the Lords and he deduces that the protective shield placed on her has given her powers beyond those expected.
Fate proceeds to merge Inza within his multiversal consciousness in which Kent Nelson resides everytime the Helmet of Fate is worn. The merger of both humans inside of him, make Fate a more powerful being, with enough mystical power to defeat both Ynar and Vandaemon. Using the mystical energies of the Lords of Order as well as the ones from the combined entity that are the humans Kent and Inza Nelson, Doctor Fate vanquishes the renegade Lords away and Earth is saved from a certain doom.
When things have returned to normal, Doctor Fate removes the Helmet, separating Inza and Kent and bringing them back to Earth. At that moment, Vern Copeland recovers at the Boston Museum, with little memory of the recent events with Inza, thanks to Fate's spell. When Kent and Inza finally awake, Inza shares her utter shock of what Kent has to endure everytime he is transformed into Doctor Fate. Kent is glad that Inza understands his plight, but they also realize that their trust issues are still there and need to be worked upon. However, Kent tells Inza not to worry too much about them at the moment, as they will work it out eventually. When a doubtful Inza asks why is he so sure, Kent simply replies by telling her "trust me".
