"Durkon" pulls the memory of Durkon's ordination out of him, in order to see the inside of the sanctuary. Judging it to be too powerfully warded, the vampires seek another battleground.

"Durkon": Hold on. Let me do a little reconnaissance, actually.
Usher with Sandy Hair: Master, we already tried scrying inside.
"Durkon": I had something a bit more idiosyncratic in mind.
Gontor: If it doesn't open, it's not even really a door! It's just a... a wall!

Inside Durkon's mind
"Durkon": Let's try this again. Show me a memory that give me a good view of the room on the other side of this door.
Durkon: Git stuffed.

"Durkon": What is the purpose of defiance at this point? You know I'm just going to absorb the memory by force, if I need to.
"Durkon": I don't understand why you would continue to put yourself in agony during what little time you have left as a discrete consciousness.
- Panel 4, Page 1
"Durkon": I would think it would be easier and less painful to just go along with my requests.
Durkon: Lotsa things.... worth doin'... are na painless.

A memory begins
Hurak: Brother Thundershield...
"Durkon": Spare me the heroics and give me a useful memory.
Durkon: Thar's definitely a use fer it.

Flashback to Durkon's ordination in the sanctuary
Hurak: Do ye pledge yer life 'n service ta tha holy father o' tha storm, master o' tha Northern skies, king o' thunder an' frequent smiter o' trees?
Durkon: Eye. May 'is lightnin' guide me path.
Hurak: Then I 'ereby ordain ye as a cleric in tha Church o' Thor.
Durkon's Male Cousin: Wooooo!
Durkon's Female Cousin: Hooray fer Cousin Durkon!
Hoskin: Praise Thor!
- Panel 1, Page 2
Kandro: Ye've done us all proud lad.
Durkon: But I dinnae actually do nuthin' yet, Uncle Kandro. It were just a ceremony.
Shirra: Oh, come on. Enough with the modesty.
Durkon's Male Cousin: Aye, yer a full-fledged cleric now, Durkon.
Thirden: How about a spell?
Durkon's Female Cousin: Can ye bless me dolly?
Hoskin: Ye know yer on tha hook ta perform our weddin' now, right?

Cut back to the present time, outside the sancuary.
"Durkon": Change of plans: I see quite a few wards in the temple sanctuary.
"Durkon": As fun as it would've been to meet Roy in battle on the floor of Thor's temple, there's too much risk. We'll fall back and find a safer battlefield.
- Panel 6, Page 3
Vampire with Long Hair: So that means we don't need to unseal the temple door anymore?
"Durkon": Thankfully, yes.
Gontor: Do you want to be a wall? Is that it?
Gontor: Do your job, you disobedient ingress!!
