Summary note
Answering the call to adventure, Siegfried plunges into a world of false friends, deceit, betrayal and death. An herb potion and deception by Hagen, the evil dwarf's son, lead Siegfried to force Brunnhilde into marrying another man. Hagen ends Siegfried's ring-cursed life with a spear in the back. Siegfried's funeral pyre and Brunnhilde's immolation ignite the heavens and earth. The Gods' fate is sealed in the final conflagration and the world awaits its rebirth.
