Kaulder and Chloe go to a place where witches are disguised as beautiful women, even in the style of fashion divas with the power of magic gems and vanity charms that conceal their physical deformities and old age. They find the woman who presides over them, Danique Van Dorn. This snobbish and glamorous sorceress who was born in Eastern Europe and lived for a couple hundred years, had been informant of Kaulder's for a long time, knowing that not only he serves the Axe + Cross organization, but she recognized him as the known immortal human who has walked through the ages and encountered many of history's famous and controversial figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Rasputin, Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler. He told her that there is no need to be nostalgic about it for the world had enough evil in it. She than blows a smoke from her hookah which puts Kaulder under a trance where he sees Helena and Elizabeth.
Chloe enters Kaulder's mind and breaks him out of the trance. Kaulder grabs a blue square-shaped gem from Danique's gold pendant. They then interrogate Danique over her business with the renegade warlock Belial. She confesses that he sells her the vanity charms powering her glamour magic in return for helping him obtain the heart of the legendary Witch Queen and selling him burial dirt used for her resurrection ritual. Before they leave together, Chloe grabbed Danique's gem from one of her champagne glasses, and she mocks her by saying "You know what I liked about thrift shops? Everything in them is old.". She then steps on and crushes Danique's precious gem which destroys her physical beauty in the process, making her look like a hag once again. The furious Danique calls Chloe a "b--ch", never forgiving her for ruining her precious, fabulous life.
