Synopsis:
After viewing a seven-year-old girl accused of slaughtering her family, Clay goes on a mysterious rampage... The newest Challengers are called to a grisly family murder - committed by a child. And Clay Brody is suddenly missing. In a NASCAR race, Clay tries to kill himself. Instead he goes on a rampage, grabbing women and beating up bikers. A psychologist-ghostbreaker named Del Colter confronts Clay, demanding, “Let him go.” Clay slashes the man and blasts off on a stolen bike... Interspersed is a dream of “another world” where Clay suffers his worst nightmare: crippled, he crawls home to his brutal coal-mining family. Forced to work in the mine, Clay rebels at memories of childhood abuse. He kills his two brothers, orders his sisters to flee to safety, and almost kills his hardbitten mother. But Del Colter oddly appears to bring Clay out of this nightmare... In real time, the Challengers pursue Clay in a car and helicopter. Kenn sideswipes a hydrant. Clay is dumped in water. A broken neon sign zaps him cold. Del Colter arrives. Clay vows “I never want to do that again!” and coughs up a dragonfly-like “soul taker” that corrodes “the worlds inside you, where you live.” Clay was infected as the monster quit the girl-murderer. Del Colter will carry it off. Asked whose soul it is, the ghostbreaker replies, “Mine.”
