HELP! Shabranigdo is Reborn!

Help! Shabranigdu Revives!! (Japanese: Help! シャブラニグドゥ復活!!, lit. Help! Shaburanigudu fukkatsu!!) is the eighth episode of Slayers. It was first broadcast in Japan on May 26, 1995.
While in a town, Lina and company get a message from Rezo. He shows his power when he turns a little boy into stone, and demands Lina and her companions go to his tower. Rezo tells them he could easily kill off the whole village. They have no choice but to "talk" with Rezo, which ends up badly.
While at the tower, Lina wants to know the truth, but figures that Rezo must have struck a deal with that monster (from the previous episode) to cure his blindness (for the Philosopher's Stone) in exchange for ressurecting the Demon King. They ask why does he want to meet them in the tower, and he replies that this is one of the places that Shabrangidu's parts are. Rezo steals the statue and manages to control Zelgadiss (something that Rezo did when he changed Zelgadiss into a chimera). He forces Zelgadiss to fight against Lina and the others.
Rezo runs off into another room, while Lina snaps Zelgadiss out of it. Rezo completes the ritual, but things turn bad when they realize he had wrong information. It turns out that Shabranigdu only needed a ceremony there, and none of his pieces was sealed in the tower. So the ritual backfires, and Shabranigdu is being reborn into Rezo's body...
Major events Edit
- Why is everyone so shocked when Rezo reveals that he plans to resurrect Shabranigdu? After all, Lina brought up everything that would have led to that conclusion. Also, why does Lina admit that she was only half-kidding about her theory? After all, Rezo's the one who orginally brought up Shabranigdu's resurrection; did she think he was joking?
- When Rezo escapes after using Kugutsu on Zelgadiss, he is holding onto his staff. However, as he is shown running up the stairs to the magic circle, he is no longer holding the staff.
