Sam and Trissitia arrive at the bottom of the tunnel, although they have both been blinded by the light of the Big Bang. Here they find the Entroilian larvae which Cjingha put into the Cosmic Egg, the Argolath sons of King Flenkt and a beautiful big blue crystal.
Catriona is tried for witchcraft and found guilty by a fraudulent trick. But before she can be burnt the Chateau is attacked by Genevan soldiers and this gives the Hospital Master the opportunity to get his revenge upon her.
As the firefighters return to CERN with their provisions they meet Alex who is hurrying to rescue Marianne and they give chase. Meanwhile Francesco and Danny are investigating the properties of crystal in the lab.
With the help of the friar, Catriona survives the night in the chapel and in the morning she is rescued from the plague hospital by soldiers from the Chateau de Peney, only to find herself in an even worse situation.
Marianne finds comfort in the concept that her baby died for a purpose: to save the world, but the very idea of a religious association appals atheist Danny. Marianne and Alex see each other through their crystals at different times and with very different results.
Finding himself tricked into marriage with Trissitia, Sam tries to avoid the wedding night by telling her about his sterility, brought on by an infection of mumps. But Trissitia is not so easily deterred.
Princess Trissitia flies Sam to his luxury quarters in King Flenkt’s palace, but her intentions towards him are not what Sam was hoping for. Their trip to the Temple of the Anting ends with a very strange and worrying ceremony.
Alex reaches the garage shop, finds some food and drink, then examines his crystal hoard and makes a discovery about crystal visibility. In medieval Geneva Catriona submits herself to examination by the Hospital Master. Meanwhile Sofie and the doctor challenge Alex in the shop.
