Michael starts to train Alex to be more ass-kicky but is interrupted by Furiad, one of Gabriel's henchman angels, who shows up and stabs Michael. All this and Alex is STILL unsure about his Chosen One responsibilities.
David tries to keep the whole Chosen One reveal under wraps and feeds anyone who knows about Alex's true identity to the lions. Literally. In his quest to maintain power he becomes frenemies with Arika, the wife of the Queen of Helena, another fortified city. David needs an air force - if war is coming he wants to be ready - so he schemes with Arika to get it.
