Volume summary: Volume 10 of Act 2

The chronology pages describe the comics to assist scholars in finding the page on which something occurred. For each page of the comic, the chronology pages identify the characters that appear, actions taken, significant quotes, and other things of interest. Page numbers from the website are zero padded to three digits and in parentheses, for example: (005), (061), (113). Page numbers from print volumes are neither, for example: 5, 61, 113. Section titles are from the canon unless otherwise noted.

For historical reasons, volumes 1 (I) through 13 (XIII) are usually identified with Roman numerals on the Girl Genius chronology pages and elsewhere in the wiki. From volume 14 on, the story entered a new "act" and the volume numbers started over, in Arabic numbers, proceeded by a "2-". For example, overall volume 15 is given as volume 2-2 on chronology pages.

For a partial timeline of the events in the comic, see Internal Chronology.

For more information on the double-page spreads in this volume, see double-page spreads in Girl Genius.

For more information on special pages in this volume, see the list of special pages, notes, and annotations.

Having let Steelgarter flee upstairs, the group attempts to quietly peek in on the conflict. The giant Monahan and Lu are fighting over the Flame, but their attention turns to the intruders.
Monahan: "Get out! It's too late for you anyway! I've already absorbed too much of the Flame's power! There isn't enough left to keep you a full Queen!"
Lu: "Oho! You have done your research! Never fear- there's more than enough energy here to keep me safely in this state until I can find another flame! Albia's should be flaring again soon- maybe I'll take hers!"

Lu is excited to see the intruders, although Monahan is less enthused. Neither has time to react before Violetta traps them in the Lantern's rays. Rakethorn expresses concern that they'll have to leave the Lantern in place to keep them trapped. Zeetha offers to guard the Lantern with Higgs while the rest of the the group seeks assistance from Albia. Violetta notices… something.
Rakethorn: "Don't you see? We've stopped them- very good- but now what?"

While she works on the pipe organ, Agatha explains her understanding of the situation to Krosp: Monahan was using the pipe organ to adjust the composition of the effluvia, with the ultimate goal of using it to become a Queen. Agatha blames the runoff from the experimentation as the source of the Cursed Waters, identifies that the purified effluvia is similar to the waters of The Dyne, and that it is what Lu and Monahan have used to become Queens. Krosp asks if Agatha can use it as well.
