A frantic Artie rushes to her former handmaiden, Katra and tells her Sin, a fallen God is after her Godhood. When Katra doesn’t seem to be motivated, Artie confesses he’s in possession of an artifact that actually has that power and reminds Katra the impact of using it. Though she no longer works for Artie, Katra has enough information to make Sin a priority.
Tracking Sin, Katra watches him work and gets that age old itch, and the fluttering. Anti-social Dark Hunter Sin would like nothing better than to restore his own powers and take away Artie’s, since she’s the reason he’s no longer a God. Sin takes Katra prisoner after mistaking her for Artie. As she tries to explain, Katra realizes she’s been duped.
Parts of this installment were amusing, such Simi with sparklies and barbeque sauce, witnessing Artie and Ash have what amounted to a martial spat. There was also quite a bit of Dark Hunter mythology. Seriousness set in when angry Artie spills secrets that affect much of what Ash thought he knew and self-involved bee-ah-tch heifer goddess Artie showed her glory.
With his own private battles going on, Sin had a very special enemy that took viciousness to a new level. Lucky Katra had enough connections and powers to make it a surprise party.
