Synopsis
Arak and Malagigi are along for the ride when Johannes (riding a pentagram) travels to Baphomet's realm. He plans to ask the arch-demon to release an ancient evil, the Gog, upon Angelica, even if it means the destruction of his own city. He answers the necessary riddle correctly, and Malagigi ventures to answer another riddle to free the Magog to counter the Gog. He also answers correctly, and they all travel back to their own realm to await possible armageddon. On a lighter note, Haakon gets to witness a nasty wrestling match between Valda and Angelica.
