Synopsis:
Russ (who has regenerated from being dead a bit nastier than usual) returns to the storage asteroid and after "interrogating" two guards, finds that what they were sent to steal was sent to Mr. Banglethwaite. One step ahead of his brother, Ron has waded through a mess of security ninjas to find Mr. Banglethwaite with the Muse Opal. Banglethwaite had hoped to meet up with Russ first, but uses the Opal to use its regenerative abilites to cure Ron of his anti-social tendancies. Unfortunately, Ron has already ripped off Banglethwaite's nose.

Russ, in the meantime, finds the demon that killed him and shifts them to a dimension where he's in charge of Hell. Burning its eye out with a cigar, Russ proceeds to scrape its butt across AIDS impregnated sandpaper, sprinkle a bit of salt into its wounds and then drop it into a vial of sulfuric acid that had been blessed by the Pope.

Jeri contacts her brother Franklin to find out who burned down the Post Bros. home. Franklin tells her that he was doing surveillance on them for the Banglethwaite Corporation.
