While performing her cabaret act, Jill Presto is informed by The Basanos that they require her assistance. Jill performs a ceremony which brings Cestis to life to hunt Elaine. Meanwhile, Elaine meets Gaudium while flying above her hometown. Gaudium insists that he is there to help her, but she doesn't trust him and goes to a friend's house to study. Beings across the world enter Lucifer's new cosmos to live where he is the creator. His only rule in this new universe is that its inhabitants are not allowed to worship. Once Cestis is sent to hunt, The Basanos force Jill to go to one of the portals to enter Lucifer's universe. As she does, we cut to Elaine's studies where she is attacked by Cestis!
