Gargoyles: City of Stone part 4 – Episode Review Continued

Demona and Macbeth died in 1057 AD. Briefly. Via the Weird Sisters’ magic, both will live until one kills the other. Now 900 years later, Macbeth is at the end of his rope. Life damages the living – even the immortal. He wants to rest, and that will require him killing Demona. She, however, has other plans, such as destroying humanity.

Meanwhile, Team Xanatos and the gargoyles are in mortal danger. In order to save themselves and New York City, they’ll have to get Demona to cooperate. Like getting blood from a stone, you say? Not if you turn the stone to flesh first. It will take super-human, gargoyle, and natural effort, though.
