Summary (from

Dharma is watching David Kim, Xombi, battle the School of Anguish. Xombi is approached by Twilight of the Shadow Cabinet, but turns him down. The Rainsaw of the Star Chamber arrives to battle Rainsaw. The creatures of Twilight go out of control, Rainsaw helps Xombi control Twilight's monsters: Snapping Jaws, the Artery Bandits, the Refractionary and others. Rainsaw accidently destroys Xombi, but he gruesomely recovers and goes with Rainsaw.
