As Sam & Twitch request that Central Park be closed down, the Night of the Cleansing is already underway; but there is no one to be cleansed! Much to Simon's dismay, the entire city seems to be free from sin. Spawn has taken that burden upon himself. Elsewhere, Dawn is about to "save" Max when she meets an untimely end, courtesy of Ab and Zab. While Simon and his legion of vampires prepare to attack Spawn, Ab and Zab are in the Citadel of the Kingdom, busying themselves by building a doorway to Hell.
