Mrs. Katzenberger calls Calliope and tells her that Dina is waiting on Caine’s doorstep.

Calliope and Sarah meet Sam at Sarah’s house. Calliope picks up Dina. They speak.

Caine and Lance give the skull to Mrs. O’Connor to keep safe. She finds out that Daphne has been kidnapped. She makes Caine promise to help them. She then calls Sarah and makes Sarah and Sam promise to be safe. She uses their full names and full on MOTHER Voice. She invoked promises from them both.

They all meet at Sarah’s house. They find out the Edward Lambert is behind everything. Audrey calls Caine and tells him this and asks him to meet her at Lambert’s house.

Caine and Dina go to Lambert’s house, Sarah, Sam, Lance, and Calli go to find Daphne.

Caine calls Rosa Mendez to fix the problem with Luis. She extracted a favor from Caine for the return of Sam’s girlfriend, Daphne, unharmed.

Sarah, Lance, Sam, and Calliope go to the warehouse near Guadalupe in Tempe. Lance and Calliope go inside. They find piles of ash (and collect some) and then find Daphne, asleep and handcuffed to a bed frame in a room in the back of the warehouse. Sarah and Sam wait outside and Sam notices two people in black suits (with blue gloves) watching from the rooftop of another warehouse.

Mrs. O’Connor calls Sarah and told her that the murderer was at her house. Sarah calls Audrey. She informs Caine. Caine and Dina travel the NeverNever to get to Mrs. O’Connor’s. They run into Coyote when they arrive. He agrees to let Caine by if Coyote can spend three days (in the NeverNever) with Dina. Caine enters the O’Connor’s.

Long Story short: They go to a park, face a nameless warlock who was attempting a part of a Dark Hollow. They kill him and dissipate the magic through the blood and break the pentagram. A Lector, that Calliope had summoned, lapped up most of the blood before Calliope drove it away.

Dave Williams is lying on the ground dead in front of them amidst the glass.
Calliope goes off to call 911 after Jacob Caine tells her to do. The Spirit of Dave Williams arrives at his death. He begins to talk to her. Tells her all sorts of how he died. His heart is missing from his chest in his spirit.

Phoenix is playing Chess with Clay Faulkner at MCSO offices.

Jacket from the suspect left his silver blue jacket on the counter upstairs.

When they exit the building they see that William’s body is missing his eyes, but his chest is intact.

As they leave the Dial Building Caine’s car is followed by a Sparkly Blue Chevy Impala low-rider. License plate Historical: 34C3 – Owner: Luis Valprese-Rodrigez, he has a rap sheet: Agg Assault, Misconduct involving Firearms, Theft of Means of Transport, Burglary.

They stop in the road and Luis pulls up next to them and threatens Jake and Calliope and tells them to leave Sirona alone. They’re Red Court Thralls.

They all meet at the MCSO office. Audrey has put the eyes in the evidence fridge.

They realize that they know each other individually and catch up.

They ask Sarah about Geronimo, she tells him he’s an Apache and he’s dead.

Calliope pulls up the owner of the eyes – it’s William Abernathy. He tells her about Hades (Jason Steele) and Virgil (Edward Lambert). Hades is the third partner. Lambert is a Columnist. Only other two Bonesmen in town.

Audrey is working on a case where a Native American inmate of the Tent City Jail escaped from jail. He was on work release, since he was non-violent, etc.. But he was checked in, people saw him come in and lay down for the night, but no one saw him leave. He was just gone. A guard said they saw someone go to one of the port-o-potties late that night, they don’t recall seeing them leave, but they didn’t keep watching them. His name was Elam Naiche.

Caine, Lance, and Calliope go into another room and Caine performs a “Talkie” Ritual. They SEE the young man and the fight with Dave Williams. The young man is possessed by the Spirit of Geronimo. He has a Spiritual Tomahawk which he uses to cut out William’s Soul Heart, and drags William’s out of his skull in a necromantic ritual then opens a portal to the NeverNever. Lance see’s mesas and desert through the portal. IT LITERALLY EXISTS.

They go through the Portal and Meet Coyote after they see the young man eat a heart offered to Coyote and run away.

They return to the office. Calliope calls Mr. Lambert and leaves him a message.

Lance and Caine go to meet Jason Steele.

Sam goes to meet Daphne. He is followed by Luis and confronts them. They are in Fear of him. He tells them to leave, and they warn him about “that bitch of a cop.”

At Jason Steele’s house his butler Woodman lets them in. They ask him about the skull and he breaks down and takes them inside as Woodman brings them drinks. He tells Woodman to watch the girls. He admits that the skull in Geronimo’s grave is a fake. He get’s dressed as Caine tells him to come with him. Asks about what Lance was doing to the windows. Caine gets annoyed and demands where the skull is. Steele admits that the skull is in his hall. He gives it to Caine.

Calliope and Sarah decide to drive out to Skeleton Canyon in Eastern Arizona. Lance calls them and they turn around to meet up.

Sam is at work when Daphne calls his phone six times. He answers. It’s Luis. He says, “You know who this is motherfucker, we have your girl.” Hangs up.
