"Wake the Devil, Part 3"
*In his pursuit of Giurescu, Hellboy must fight his way through Hecate's witches, but is finally rewarded. He lays Giurescu low, but Hecate is there to intervene. Meanwhile, the spirit of Rasputin relates to Ilsa Haupstein how the Baba Yaga made him eternal by hiding half his soul in the roots of Yggdrasil the World Tree. He asks if Ilsa is ready to deepen her commitment to the Master. Elsewhere, Liz Sherman's team searches another locale for Giurescu, but instead finds the inert form of the homunculus, Roger. She inadvertently gives him the spark of life, at which point Roger kills a BPRD Agent, and flees. In Norway, Kurtzn and Kroenen differ on their support for the revival of Project Vampir Sturm, when Zinco arrives with a discovery, the head in a jar of Werner Von Klempt. Back at Giurescu's castle, Hellboy is setting charges to demolish the place. But Giurescu is not dead...yet. *Source: Warlock
