They suspect that the Earl wants to use the power over time for his own goals. They try to warn the other members of the lodge, but their pleas fall on deaf ears. On the contrary, now they are seen as traitors.
With the help of Gideon, her best friends Leslie and Xemerious, a water-spewing demon, Gwen tries to uncover why she is so important for the lodge and what the Ruby’s destiny is.
