Synopsis:
Unconscious for days, Coley awakes to find himself a prisoner of the cult. Beaten, he's told by Joquatoth that Danny was eaten by the cult members-- and that the fate of Coley's friends now depends on him. Kit & Lon, meanwhile, have recovered from their seemingly-impossible sex-change operations, without even any scars-- and soon get busy with each other. Helmut has his way with Coley, then Joquatoth demands Coley choose-- life with him as his lover, or death for everyone. Coley reveals Joquatoth's horrible secret for all to see, apparently sealing their fates!

Synopsis:
With both Coley & Lon strung up, Joquatoth uses the mystic dagger to call forth the demon Tuaarkha. As the monster ravishes Lon, Coley's new pet chews at his ropes, while a "transformed" Kit takes Harry as a cover for freeing him as well. Loose again, Coley engages Joquatoth in battle, as Kit & Harry escape. Stabbing Joquatoth seems to cause the nearby volcano to erupt, and Coley, Lon & his pet barely escape with their lives as the entire temple is engulfed in molten fire. As Harry tells Manuel, "Coley is very hard to kill."
