You are not doing this to me again! Do you have any idea what my life has been like for the last 10 years? I've been stuck in an urn for the last 10 years. So have I! A figurative urn of ridicule. Do you know that in certain parts of the tri-state area, they still refer to having a nervous breakdown as "pulling a David Stutler"?
Did you know that? Try to be a good listener, Dave. That doll is called the Grimhold. It is a prison for the most dangerous Morganians in history, each one locked up in a layer of the doll. Horvath wants to free his fellow Morganians and destroy the world. This must not happen. For sure. The truth is, you have a very special gift. You need to see that. I just want to be normal. Normal life. I want to forget about that day at Arcana Cabana. I want to forget about magic. I want to forget everything. You want to forget magic? Then why did you keep the ring?
I was going to sell that on eBay. You're still a bad liar, Dave. I like that about you. It's a good sign.
You have the gift. No, I have a life. You're the last person Horvath saw with the Grimhold. That puts you on his list. So unless you want him to turn you into a pig who just loves physics, then you better help me find that doll before he does. This is crazy. You see how crazy this is, right? All right. You help me get it back, you're done. Can you please put my dresser back? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
What are you Oh, no. Please don't do that. What are you doing? Biometric pressure spell displaces the atmosphere above the doll. Looks like downtown. If we can track the Grimhold, so can Horvath. Yeah, but this car's been impounded for 10 years. This is low-profile. She missed me. I'm going to give you the basics. Strictly Sorcery Put on the ring. Nothing's going to happen.
Sorcerers can manipulate matter because they're born with the capability to use the entire power of their brains. Which also explains why molecular physics comes so easily to you. So, wait. Is sorcery science or magic? Yes and yes. For now, all you need is a basic combat spell. Making fire. What causes molecules to heat up? They vibrate. Everything we see is in a constant state of vibration, thus the illusion of solidity.
But how do we take that which appears solid and have it burst into flames? We will the vibrations to go faster. Step one, clear your mind. Step two, see the molecules. Step three, make them shake. I definitely don't "got it. And keep it subtle. Civilians mustn't know magic exists. That would be complicated. Says the guy in the year-old rawhide trench coat. I threw it in the street. Those guys are But where? Get out of the way, freak! I need to pull in there! Are you addressing me? Hey, don't mess with me. Where was I? This is it. I'll get the Grimhold. Keep an eye out for Horvath.
Can I help you? Do you have an appointment? I'm sorry to trouble you. I'm looking for a Well, it's rather strange. It's a nesting doll. It's about this big. Angry-looking Chinese gentleman on the front. It's possible. I collect so many objects. You speak Mandarin. That was Cantonese, Horvath. The Grimhold. Where is it? An old associate of mine speaks impeccable Cantonese. He lived about years ago. Know him? Sun Lok. Of course you do.
You locked him inside the Grimhold. Opened it. Are you all right? Looks like What the I'm like one of them. You should run. Be still. Oh, God. Come on. You skipped the first step! Clear my mind? Are you insane? Little bit. Clear your mind. Go Team Magical Stuff! Did you see that? Did you see what I just did? I did it. It can't be. Hey, what do you got? Did you see what happened here? Bottle rocket meets paper dragon in this Asian festival.
Lit it up like a birthday cake. We got swamped with calls saying there was a real dragon. Between you and me, Cap, I think some of these folks were hitting the sake pretty hard. Sake's Japanese, actually. Carry on. You may now return the ring to me. I'm a man of my word. You helped me, we're done. I'd like to learn some more. We'll need a place to work. Somewhere under Horvath's radar. I think I can help with that. This was originally a subway turnaround. They let me work down here because some of my experiments skew a bit dangerous.
Oh, my professor has a hookup, so nobody knows we're down here. I didn't have a chance to give you this before. Your Encantus. I remember it being bigger. Pocket edition. The Encantus is our textbook. The art and science and history of sorcery. Including our recent history as well. There you are. Before we can put Horvath back inside the Grimhold, we must first turn you into a sorcerer, which begins now.
Step back. Mouth closed. This is the Merlin Circle. It focuses your energy. Helps you master new spells.

It is where you will learn the Art. Step inside, you leave everything else behind. Once you enter, there is no going back. So, I should probably pee first? Better safe than I can hold it. I am Balthazar Blake, sorcerer of the th degree, and you are my apprentice. Your ring is not a piece of jewelry. It projects the electrical energy of your nervous system into the physical world. Without his ring, a sorcerer is powerless. The only other thing a sorcerer needs is a nice pair of pointy shoes.
Your rubber soles block the current. Plus it helps to look classy. These are old man shoes. Excuse me? I love them. A lot. I haven't seen that cane since I saw a picture of it when I was a boy. You've been locked up a long time. And now I'm out. And I need soldiers.
I got one kid. He ain't old school. One will do. Your ingenuity and your heart will give you an advantage over Morganians. They rely only on the power of their magic. But if you're up against the wall, there's only one weapon of choice, the plasma bolt. There's nothing. I got it! I got one! That's underwhelming. And again. That's what padding is for. So, out of a bath full of jewels, I'm going to emerge, right?
And everyone's going to think I'm me. I reach into the big top hat and I pull myself out, but I'm a woman. A ball of fire, right, a baby sitting in a nappy, but I would like a tiger. If I could get, like, a tiger jumping out of a leopard. But not out of its mouth, that's been done, I'm sure, somewhere. Just perfect, darling. Yeah, now, keep it straight up sinister. Oh, do tell me this is a joke. Sorry, are you lost? So, you're what passes for a Morganian these days. Maxim Horvath! You are one smoking man of Will you excuse us, ladies?
Yes, excuse us, ladies. So, they tell me you're some kind of entertainer. Five sold-out shows at the Garden, plus back end on the pay-per-view. Did you ever see Morgana pull a rabbit out of a hat? Look, my master disappeared when I was 15, vanished! Left me with nothing but an Encantus and some prescription-grade abandonment issues. So I improvised. Well, the time for improvisation is over. Balthazar Blake may have found the Prime Merlinean. He wears the ring? The best way to defend against fire, vacuum sphere. Your turn.
I did it! What's wrong with your Tesla coil? It seems to be firing on its own. Really, really funny. This will be hilarious, then. Oh, my God!

Beg your pardon. I haven't eaten in 10 years. Yeah, fair enough. You mind if I ask what's so special about this bench? There's no time for that, and too much at stake. That girl, she's the one, man. And you're my mentor, Balthazar.
- Model Boat Building from start to finish;
- Engaño feliz (Bianca) (Spanish Edition).
- Warriors Return.
- The Bequest;
Aren't you supposed to help me to achieve my personal goals? Except I'm not your mentor. I'm your master. And your master says if Horvath catches you out on the street, you'll die. Is she worth that? Think about it, Dave. And don't eat my sandwich. What a coincidence. Oh, hey, Dave. Not in a threatening way. Why was I even concerned? So I listened to your show last night.
I've never actually heard of any of those bands, which I think is a good indicator that they're cool. I'm glad someone was listening. This may come as a surprise to you, I don't get up to much. Give me the cash. Give it. Hey, hey, hey. That was my grandmother's bracelet.
Dave, don't! You just give me that bracelet back, please. You better run back to your girlfriend. Believe me, I wish she was You thought she was my girlfriend? Is that the kind of vibe you got? You talk too much. Shut up. I have no idea what you're referring to. I honestly Up the stairs! Here you go. Your grandmother's bracelet. How did you do that? That guy was huge. I've been doing a lot of cardio boxing lately. Let me introduce Thunder, Lightning. Something about you seems different. I'm wearing new shoes. This your train? I just want to tell you that if you want me to help you with your midterms, come by my lab.
It's a date. It's not a date! It's a date like an appointment. A date like an appointment! Love is a distraction. Sorcery requires complete focus. Let's go, Thunder and Lightning. There's more to learn. This is perfect. The Rising will happen here. We'll use their satellite dishes on the rooftops. There, and there, and there. Sorry about that. It's just nice for them to see a genuine icon like me. Fortunately, they'll all be dead soon. And before that, we need to find the boy.
Well, how do we do that? We'll wait until he's alone. Now, focus on control. Set me down slow and steady. It's Becky. I'll be back shortly. Could you please hide? Hide now. Dave, get back here. We have important work to do. Knock, knock. We should go. A library, anyplace Is that company I hear? Becky, this is my Uncle Balthazar. Hey, Dave, I'm confused.
I thought you and I were staying in together.
If this is a bad time, - I can come back. Uncle, you and I have plans for later on. Becky, let's just get out of here. It's all right, because I just remembered I have to go into town to pick up your anti-itch cream. So, you two stay here. Pleasure to meet you.
Okay, enough with the studying. There's something I want to show you. I was using them to generate something called plasma. The thing is, I got so fixated on the technical aspects of it that I almost didn't notice something kind of beautiful. I think you'd better step into my cage. Okay, it's definitely the first time anyone has said that to me.
I'm not surprised. Just hold on to this bar, please. Both hands. Okay, hold on tight and enjoy the show. Oh, my gosh. How is this possible? The coils are firing at such a high frequency that the sparks literally create soundwaves as they fly through the air. Which is nerdy. You were listening. I played this song the other night.
These coils are my life. Two years I'm down here working with them, and they're making their own music and it was lost on me. I was never able to appreciate it until I met you and heard you talking about music on your radio show, and I'm sappy. This is me. So, do you want to meet up later?
My lab? Yeah, that would be great.
