Synopsis Tired of his mind numbing domestic life, middle-aged loser Theo leaps from a bridge to his death; Instead of dying, however, he instead lands on Longshot who was dumped in the river at the end of last issue; He begins to tell Longshot his everyday woes including the fact that Con Edison rips him off in charging excessive amounts for electrical power; The naive Longshot decides to break into Con Ed and steal a cache of diamonds to pay Theo his money back; The pair make it into the power plant and the wires and machinery spark a few of Longshot's memories about his home world; They get the diamonds but are attacked by Spiral, Gog and their allies who are after the same thing; During the ensuing battle, machinery gets destroyed and blacks out all of New York City; Spiral uses some of the diamonds to open a portal back to her home world and the demons disappear; Magog is left behind and finally reveals himself to be Longshot's enemy, fully intent on killing him; Realizing that his humdrum life is better than all of this adventure, Jinx returns home, leaving Longshot alone once again.
