After she accepts, he blows her off in a very cruel fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he hates. Enraged by his horrible appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only way to break the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is, which is something he considers impossible.
