The Precious is the one hundred fortieth issue of the series, and the fourteenth season finale.
Sykes threatens to throw the Duo Stone half in the lava, but the Future Writer appears and tells him to hand it over, but Sykes refuses, calling it his "precious." Samus yells "THIS! IS! NOT LORD OF THE RINGS!" and kicks Sykes into the lava, grabbing the Stone half, which she throws to Oveur as the Future Writer tries to intercept. Oveur throws it to the Writer as John Madden comments on the match as if it were a football game. The Writer tosses it to Samus as the Future Writer teleports over to her location, blasting her into the lava and grabbing his half of the Stone. He uses its power to heal his wounds, ridding himself of the metal mask, revives Sykes, and escapes. The Writer tells Oveur that they must go on without Samus to find his half of the Stone-in the past.
Samus is saved from the lava by Master Chief, who says "Hello again, Samus."
- Sykes calls the Duo Stone half his "precious", a reference to Lord of the Rings (which Samus notes).
- Samus kicks Sykes into the lava after yelling "THIS! IS! NOT LORD OF THE RINGS!", a parody of 300.
