Illyana stabs Storm to spare her soul a fate worse than death at Belasco's hand. She teleports herself and the body away to Storm's grove in Limbo, where Illyana gives her friend a proper burial. Belasco punishes Illyana for her insolence by turning the realm against her, but Illyana forges a sword from her own soul, and confronts the sorcerer in his fortress.
