    Heumac enters the temple and postulates that an assassin may be responsible for Kukulkan's death. Nasca dismisses this saying Heumac has no standing now that Kukulkan is dead, and the marriage to Chimalma cannot take place, now that Teshcata through the spirit of Shadakia has given his verdict.
    Chimalma says such talk can wait until the funeral of the emperor.
    Nasca urges Mahoutec to be a warrior again and fight the evil Heumac has brought into the palace. Nasca tells Mahoutec that how could Heumac have beaten him so easily, unless Heumac is a sorcerer and used enchantments, not only against him but also against Chimalma. Nasca says Heumac must sense weakness in the palace and someone so power hungry as he will attack mercilessly, and therefore Mahoutec must attack first without warning the Toltec camp outside the city.
    Mahoutec says if Nasca brings him proof of Heumac's sorcery he will attack.
    Tozo in hiding is about to reveal himself when suddenly Shadak grabs him stifles his cry for help. A stone slab behind the statue opens as Shadak pulls down on lever, and he drags Tozo into the passageway. Tozo still carries the chart of the secret passages, but the stone slab closes trapping a portion of the chart in the stonework, ripping the chart in two, he then drops his remaining piece of it.
    Heumac returns alone to the temple and sees the piece of chart sticking out of the wall, and he pulls it out and then sees Chimalma.
    H " this proves there is a hidden passage in the temple and an assassin could indeed have gained access and killed Kukulkan"
    Tozo is held prisoner in Nasca secret chamber behind the temple. Nasca is delighted Shadak made the capture and has found the chart that Tozo dropped, but has no time to interrogate the boy now. He scratches the boy with a needle dipped in poison, Tozo is paralyzed totally , lying on the floor of the chamber.
    Nasca picks up a phial containing ointment,
    N " this will cure the paralysis, I will administer it, then we'll talk"
    As Nasca and Shadak leave the hidden passage back into the temple, Heumac is hiding, and before the slab slides closed again he slips in.
    Nasca tells Mahoutec to put a guard out of sight outside Chimalma's chamber and to notify him if Heumac enters.
    Nasca turns to Shadak,
    N " if we kill Chimalma,Mahoutec will be emperor, but if we keep her alive but in a state of helplessness, near to death but not dead, we can make the decisions of state for her and stay in control"
    Heumac finds Tozo, paralyzed and unable to talk. By blinking his eyes, once for yes twice for no, he communicates with Heumac, answering his questions.
    " is there an antidote?"
    " do you know which phial contains the antidote ?"
    Heumac picks up each of the many phials Nasca has here in this torture chamber, Tozo blinks yes as Heumac selects the right one. Tozo recovers and tells Heumac of the attack on their camp Nasca is urging Mahoutec to make.
    Heumac sees Chimalma at once. Shadak in the secret passage is looking through a spyhole into the chamber, carrying a blowpipe, he fires the poison dart. Chimalma collapses, Nasca and Mahoutec burst in,
    N " there Mahoutec, proof of Heumac's sorcery, the Toltec must die"
    H " I know the poison that afflicts Chimalma, kill me and she will never recover"
