Everyone gets a good night sleep (especially Liam) and wakes up around 10. Liam grabs some starbucks and picks up Annie, they then head to the scottish arms to pick up Cole.
They decide to head over and Talk to Elden Carver at the Arch Diocese. When they arrive they find Elden shoveling snow, He is introduced to Cole (who gets that crazy holy powa stuff off him) and they go inside to talk. Unfortunately Elden does not have much to offer in help but does give them a vial of Holy water to take with.
Next they call Miranda and ask to meet with her at Seamus McDaniels. When they arrive they Find Felix Tanner of the Summer court enjoying a Pint of Guinness. Liam runs outside to call Miranda to avoid a supernatural baking soda volcano. Felix introduces himself Cole to tries to sway Annie over to the summer side. He offers Cole to come by the botanical gardens and that the Countess would love to meet him. He also gets very serious with Cole for a moment reminding him that he is true fae and that he cannot tell a lie, and to note that when he says "Something is “wrong” with Winter". He finishes his pint and bids them farewell and leaves out the back.
Liam (kinda pissed) is unable to get ahold of Miranda but Felix leaves before he arrives. Cole Sets up a Sound Veil in the back room and is startled to realize that he didn’t think he needed a circle to accomplish this. Miranda Arrives and they all sit down.
The Binding from their Oath to Feargul hinders much communication about what the Red Court and Summer are up to however it is still a Mystery as to what Summer gets out of the deal. Miranda says she will look into if any of the summer court can be linked to the tuatha de danann.
While Debating their next move after Miranda leaves, Liam hears a Banshee’s wail from north of them. They rush out and get in the car and head to forest park. Along the treeline by the soccer fields they find Miranda’s Body with a puncture wound through her next. Moments later the Countess appears who is very displeased. Following her Lord Paizo appears and directs the Countess should return to the Zoo, he begins the cleanup.
Liam, Annie, and Cole head to the Art Museum and try to open the portal to Tir Na Nog. Upon doing this the Gargoyles disappear. The overwhelming feeling of being stalked by a hunter is noticable as the Gargoyles attack. Severe damage is taken on all sides and one gargoyle is “destroyed” until the last takes Liam’s throat in his jaws and lifts him up. Liam offers up his name and heritage and the Gargoyle licks the Blood from his Neck. Turning back they notice the 2nd Gargoyle has regenerated itself and stood ready to pounce. It acknowledges him and allows them to open the portal.
Inside the portal they find another grassy hill, atop it is a statue of a man with one hand, seated and holding a sword out in his other. Liam Picks up the sword taking possession of Nuada’s Sword.
