* '''Zig Zagged''': Jack brings the Seven Jewels to defeat the DarkLord, and as above, they cement his power, but the Dragon steps in to ensure the fulfillment of the prophecy - but fails, as the BigBad's power now equals the Dragon's. Meanwhile Jack visits a [[AWizardDidIt wizard]], who crafts a weapon out of the seven jewels that the DarkLord's power cannot affect, because of the jewels, phlebotinum and [[GreenLantern yellow paint]]. Jack [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim cracks his skull.]]
