|"Once again, we return."|
The 1920s Recurrence started at an unknown point in the 1920s and ended on 31st December 1923, with the passing of the final four gods. The gods of this Recurrence took the forms of important Modernist figures. It was the subject of the 1923 special.
Unusually, the 1920s gods all lived right until the end of the Recurrence, when they suddenly started dying one by one. The gods assembled at Lucifer's house for what they thought would be a party, but which turned out to be a murder mystery. The murders were eventually revealed to have been committed by Baal, Set and Woden. Baal and Set wanted to put an end to what they deemed 'low art', and planned to use the energy created by the murders to shape 'the spirit of the age'. Woden, a fascist, wanted to capture the zeitgeist permanently and use it to establish a totalitarian society with Nazi Germany at its helm. They were, however, defeated and destroyed by the remaining gods, Amaterasu, Susanoo, Amon-Ra and Minerva. These four gods then sacrificed themselves in an explosion overseen by Ananke, in an attempt to diminish the effects of the impending Second World War, which Ananke led them to believe would be the eventual result of Baal, Set and Woden's ritual. In reality, this entire sequence of events had been put into motion by Ananke, who wanted the creature Woden had referred to as 'the zeitgeist'. David Blake described this period as 'the bloody retreat'.
Footage has survived of the 1920s Recurrence, but the miracles themselves could not be recorded on camera. All that can be seen is crowds freaking out over what appears to be nothing.
