The heroes find that Hell means many things to different members: Beatriz gets lousy cell-phone service, Mary can't access her powers, Booster apologizes profusely for getting them all into this mess but no one cares, Ted is harsh and Ralph is thinking about his unborn children. Discussions of God and the hereafter also abound. Guy uses the artifact to send himself and Power Girl to the rescue, where he reveals that he has his ring power back. As the heroes start working in the fast-food restaurant in Hell, Beatriz notices one of the customers is Ice.

As Guy and Power Girl rescue our heroes, he sees that Beatriz has discovered his old flame, Tora, in fast food hell. He is reunited with her as Etrigan tells the heroes they can leave Hell.

Guy and Beatriz struggle with this, but Beatriz, in true Orpheus fashion, has to sneak a small look--and Tora vanishes--forever.
