The Caballeros follow Sheldgoose to Mexico, where they climb the endless staircase of a ziggurat into the clouds, only to emerge down a staircase in a mirror world. Seeming to descend from the clouds, the mirror-world populace celebrates Panchito as the messenger of the God of Life. The locals lavish attention on them, and at first Panchito, Donald, Jose, and Xandra are digging it, but they soon realize the God of Life's messenger is set to fight the messenger of the God of Death: Sheldgoose. Panchito is enjoying showboating to the crowd with what he believes to be a "symbolic exhibition" match until he learns that only one victor may emerge from the battle. It's TO THE DEATH.
