    Synopsis: Michael determines that the evil (previous iss.) is still active, and that he indeed must go back 100 years to when Lucas put it in motion.
    Snowbird arrives and bows to Elizabeth, acknowledging her as the fulfillment of an ancient prophesy: the one who binds all evil. Michael has her pull a coronet from his medicine bag, and she is transformed into Talisman.
    Michael transports himself, Elizabeth, Judd, and Snowbird back to Calgary in 1884. They find Chase and Lucas forcing an Indian to conjure up Ranaq. Protected by Talismans, they force Ranaq to give them women and money. Ranaq fools Chase into removing his talisman and possesses him. Snowbird and Elizabeth attack him.
    The old Indian gets Lucas to shoot Ranaq's host body with a piece of talisman, killing him. They bury the body on the site of Ft. Calgary, where it will be discovered in 100 years (iss. 14).
