Turns out that it's the real King Gamina in the sphere and an impostor back in the city.

The impostor King is revealed as really Dr. Senn, who had persuaded Blakeslee to help him at gunpoint. Cholorus leads his followers against the city and it's now magic and sorcery against the city's defenses. In the end, Rip and the Time Sphere fly over Cholorus, and Rip ropes the sorcerer, removing and destroying the source of his power, a ring with a power stone.
