Meanwhile Ulik and Donald take down the death troopers bringing them food and Ericka orders the group to find Pietro and Wad. Meanwhile Red and Lorelei discuss their old lives and disappointment at being Seth’s slaves. Loki steals the information from Wad’s mind and returns to his quarters wih Seth. Ericka, Howie, Barry and Enchantrress break into the cell just as Pietro announces Loki cast a spell on him and suddenly reverts to his true form, that of the Grand Vizier, Odin’s most loyal servant. Loki tells Odin’s plan to Seth of how Odin turned the gods to mortals to spare them from the world tree’s ragnarok and had planned for Thor to save them until Thor died and ruined the plan. He also mentions how backups were in play in the form oif Thunderstrike, Beta Ray Bill and Red but none of them could now help. He also reveals Seth can’t destroy the Asgardians until they are in their true form before attacking him in an attempt to save his kind. Back in the cell Enchantress reveals Grand Vizier has enough power to get them home even though half the team are seperated. At that point the others (Ulik, Tyrone and Donald) are still seatching the castle and find the Frost Giants who join their cause as one is in love with Enchantress. As Seth and Loki battle the Grand Vizier reveals he can take everyone in the room back to Earth but one person is being magcally prevented from leaving but Enchantress insists it doesnt matter unaware that it is her. They return to Freddie and Freda on Earth. Enchantress appears in proximity of Lorelei who she doesnt attack, Lorelei gets her up close where the Enchantress sadly kills her once again.
