With Toro getting medical attention, the Torch heads back to police headquarters for leads on the Stock Exchange break in. There the chief shows him a card they received from the Hag warning the city that this is just the beginning. Meanwhile, Toro revives at the hospital delirious and attacks the hospital staff before he is subdued again. Realizing that Toro needs a "flame transfusion" the Torch is called in to help. While in her secret hideout, the Hag is plotting the next phase of her plan.
