Stricken by grief, Pezzini has locked herself in her apartment for four days. But while she isn’t inclined to get up from her bed, she’s terrified when the Witchblade roots her to that spot, expanding itself into metal tendrils that wrap around her body. Danny appears to comfort her and warn her that the Witchblade is testing her resolve and her character – a test which, if failed, will prove to be fatal. Kenneth Irons is also watching the proceedings closely, and feeling them as well through some kind of link to Sara. Through the test, Sara discovers that she is not related to Joan of Arc, Elizabeth Bronte, or an ancient Celtic goddess of retribution…she is Joan of Arc, Elizabeth Bronte, and an ancient Celtic goddess of retribution. Meanwhile, Jake McCartey is undergoing a test of his own as Captain Dante tries to recruit him into a shady elite police brotherhood known as the White Bulls – an association that would require Jake to sell Pezzini out.
