CHASING THE SERPENT
SEASON THREE | EPISODE FIVE

Before hell swindled his life, mercenary Al Simmons ventured into the heat of the jungle to retrieve Major Forsberg, a fallen soldier who sought sanctuary in a hidden temple to escape the horrors of war. Sent by Jason Wynn, Simmons mission was to bring Forsberg back to him alive if possible, dead if necessary. It does not matter that Forsberg is a trusted friend. Orders are orders. Simmons betrays his friend without regret.

Cogliostro tells Spawn these memories have meaning. They are defining moments in Al Simmons destiny as a pawn of Malebolgia. Spawn claims he did not know what Wynn meant to do with Forsberg, but Cogliostro knows better. What neither is aware of is that Wynn has kept the major alive for all of these years in an opium den, in a cell where Forsberg rots. Now Wynn has come to visit the major in his cell and Wynn wants to know about a mask that was in the temple when he was captured. It is the war mask of Genghis Khan. The mask possesses great power, and Wynn wants it.

The war mask is in the possession of a known Chinatown witch named Zhang Lao. Cogliostro pays him an inquiring visit. Cog wants the Army of Light to spare the Hellspawn. But this is not to be. The prophecy is in place. The seed of a Hellspawn has been planted. The seed, Lao explains, is inside Wanda, the former wife of Spawn. But, while Wanda worries about the whereabouts of her missing husband Terry, she is also aware of the strangeness growing within her.

Jade, the bounty hunter is troubled as well. Hidden in Lao's Chinatown shop, Jade tells of the fading division between good and evil, and the sympathy she has begun to feel for the Hellspawn. Meanwhile, Terry attempts to stab Wynn, but winds up a prisoner of the opium den. Wynn finds the war mask in Lao's shop and learns two valuable lessons: Lao is more powerful than he seems, and the mask is not to be worn by just anyone. Wynn is badly burned by the mask and retreats to lick his wounds. All the while, Wanda locates Terry in the opium den and attempts to rescue him, but they are surrounded, badly outnumbered by Wynn's henchmen. But, they are not alone. Spawn is there on a mission to free Forsberg, and stumbles upon the escape and lends a demonic hand.

While Wanda, Terry and the Major escape, Spawn takes the form of Terry and waits for the disfigured Jason Wynn. Spawn springs his trap and tries to kill Wynn, but Wynn's henchmen are packing heavy heat and blow the Hellspawn into bloody submission. Jade appears at the last second and saves Spawn, and makes way for everyone to escape. Later in the church, when Spawn asks Jade why she saved him, she has no answer. Instead she removes his mask and embraces the Hellspawn in a passionate kiss.
