Part 2: Satana at the mercy of demon cultists! And if she dies - a world perishes!
Judith again dreams, and has nightmares of Satana and the Basilisk. She awakens with the pentagram smeared on her forehead in oil. Through it she sees the binding of Satana and the group about to destoy her. Judith gets dressed and goes to save her. The house is guarded agianst her leaving, but with the Basilisk's help she gets through it. She goes to the gathering and is not allowed in. She is then helped by a man who has a shop across the street. Judith almost seduces him for his soul, sees Satana's face in the mirror as she turns away. Mr. Dyson, the proprietor of the shop, then explains to Judith how she is Satana, even though she remembers her own life. Satana's spirit is then abruptly taken by the Camarilla from Judith. Dyson then explains to her the Basilisk, and shoes her how she has been its pawn all this time. The Basilisk wants to be free to destroy.
The Satanic ceremony is on! Judith/Satana, once again whole, busts in on them and again takes them out like Jackie Chan until their numbers drag her down. The Camarilla want the end of the world, the Basilisk is waiting for it. Satana's death may release it. The knife is held above her. Satana knows she has one chance, and takes it. She summons the Basilisk to destroy the Camarilla before they can kill her. The Basilisk destroys everything in one big splash page. Satana remains, and catches Brain Abelard's butterfly soul floating away on the breeze. She catches it with two fingers and crushes it, sending him to Hell. Satana laughs at the blood and carnage all around her.
Also included is a text piece by Chris Claremont called "From the Devil, A Daughter", which runs down her history so far, explaining that this is the end of the first run of Satana.
