With Thor at his side, and Geirrodur as their bound prisoner, Ulik feels unstoppable! He is so excited as he tells his plans to Thor “Let us make haste to combine the two troll armies, that the world of mortals shall fall to us all the sooner!” It is a big let-down for the Troll when Thor turns on him, still sore that Ulik had Jane captured.
Thor defeats Ulik and then uses the magic in Geirrodur’s stolen staff to start a blazing fire in order to disperse the assembled Trolls. Everyone scatters, while a bound, pitiable Geirrodur is left for dead.
Thor and Jane return to the surface world, through the hole created by Ulik’s forces. Hercules and the Vizier have been hanging around that spot along with the newly promoted Lieutenant Blumkenn. Thor and Hercules work together to close the hole by throwing rocks and lightning at it. Afterward, Herc accepts an invitation to visit California to give a university lecture on mythology.
Meanwhile, Orrin and Judith have been invited back to the union hall of the picketing grape-pickers. Their leader, Tomas Chamaro is whipping the strikers into a frenzy when Conners and his men arrive. Orrin, who has slipped back into an Asgardian speech pattern, starts in on the strikebreakers, which inspires the striking workers to join in the melee.
Having incited violence so that he need not fight himself, Orrin prepares to depart the union hall when a giant pyramid erupts out from the ground, displacing the city around it. Orrin becomes transfixed, walking straight toward it, ignoring the pleas of Judith.
Back in New York, Jane convinces a brooding Blake that he needs to return to Asgard, so that he might find his missing father. Spurred to action by Jane, Thor departs, while Jane must stay behind, as mortals are not welcome in Asgard.
As soon as Thor leaves, Jane discovers news coverage of the Pyramid in California. She is shocked to recognize Odin , who slowly walks toward the entrance of the pyramid, to meet three figures who appear to be the Egyptian gods Horus, Osiris, and Isis. He enters, and then the doors to the Pyramid slam shut.
First Appearance: Horus, Osiris, Isis
