Upon Cardinal Sforza's request, Father Abel makes an attempt to locate Ion and arrange for his protection. Meanwhile, Brother Petro Orcini and Sister Paula Souwauski of the Department of Inquisition arrive in Carthage with the intent to locate Ion and deal with the threat to Cardinal Sforza.

Colonel Mary Spencer and Count Virgil Walsh give Esther and the Pope a tour of the Ghetto, which lies underneath Londinium, the capital city of Albion.

Meanwhile, Esther is caught by Dietrich while searching for the Pope; he reveals that he has been preparing for the coming arrival of an angel and takes his leave.

Vanessa returns to Virgil, who denounces the rebellion and tells her that they can place their hopes in a new generation, one that can see the animosity between Terrans and Methuselahs dissolved.

As the two battle, Abel remembers Cain as he used to be when they were younger. The fight ends in a draw after they simultaneously knock each other out of the sky as the sun rises.
