After torturing a stool-pigeon, Spawn learns that it was
Antonio Twistelli who kidnapped Cyan while at the safe house. But Tony's boys
have lost the girl to the deadly hands of Billy Kincaid. News of the screw-up
travels fast and Jason Wynn confronts Senator McMillian about Billy's actions.
McMillian denies any knowledge of his killer son's doings, and both men are
left wondering who could be behind it.
Wynn believes the senator has nothing to do with the interference and is
convinced that there are other players in the mix who are screwing with his
plans. He sends Chapel off to track down the weapon thief, while he concocts
his next move. Meanwhile, Antonio Twistelli prepares to leave town knowing that
losing the child will cause him a great deal of trouble. But before he can
leave, Spawn descends out of the darkness and makes the fat mob boss talk. All
Spawn gets out of him is a physical description of Billy and that he drives an
Downtown, Twitch has uncovered the Senators bloody secret. He knows that
McMillian is hiding a killer son named Billy and that the alley murders began
because of an extortion plot that went horribly wrong. The senator used Tony's
thugs to snuff the extortionists life before he talked to the reporters. Burke
takes the explosive information and runs with it. He orders a total and
complete manhunt. He wants Billy Kincaid, dead or alive.
Billy's Workshop. Billy bends down and slowly lowers the sack around Cyan's
bundled form. She is blindfolded, sweaty with fear. Her huge eyes stare at
Billy's massive, pocked face. She knows her time is up. Luckily she is very
Spawn emerges from the shadows. "Move away from the child. Now!"
But Billy has other plans. He throws chemicals at the Hellspawn that catch the
house and Spawn on fire. Billy races from the scene with Cyan in his grip and
leaves Spawn to burn. Outside, the police have located the house and give
chase. Spawn recovers from the inferno and tracks down the ice-cream truck.
Stand-off. Billy is cornered by Spawn, but Billy has Cyan and the knife. One by
one the players arrive on the scene as Clown watches from above, laughing at
every wince of pain. Detectives Burke and Twitch are there. Wanda and Terry
have been informed of the mayhem and are there, waiting, watching and praying.
Spawn makes his move. He wraps Kincaid in his cape and raises him off the
ground. Billy begs for help while Clown cheers Spawn on chanting kill him, kill
him over and over. Spawn is tempted, but resists the Clown and his own inner
rage. He casts the killer to the ground along with the rest of the garbage.
Clown is mortified. It wasn't supposed to end like this. All his work was for
nothing. Spawn is still resisting, and rejecting the deal. Angered, but not
beat, Clown kills Billy and vows to Spawn that the fight is far from over.
After all, a deal is a deal.
In the end Cyan returns, safe to Wanda and Terry. In her hands she holds a
trinket from her ordeal and hands it to her mother. It is Al Simmon's wedding
"Where did you get this, Cyan?"
"The sad man..."
For all Hellspawns, a time comes when the stage is set. All sides have been
chosen. The world and its rules have been defined. And the real war, in all its
apocalyptic horror, is finally ready to begin.
