Merlin puts the words "Yarva Etrigan Daemonicus" on Etrigan's head and makes him attack Morgaine Le Fey's army outside of Camelot. But it is too late and Camelot is still destroyed, but instead of just letting Etrigan go free he transforms the demon in a man.

Gotham City: Now- Jason Blood is being torqured by a group of demons. They are looking for Etrigan, and their search lead to Jason.
