Returning from surgery, Dinah and Zinda help Barbara move into her new apartment in Metropolis and is greeted by a welcoming party set up by Dinah.
After the party Helena leaves again, still feeling resentful from being "rehabilitated" by Oracle. Afterwards, while Superman is in Tehran helping earthquake victims, Prankster stages a Mayan sacrifice on public television but is foiled by Black Canary and Blackhawk.
Meanwhile, in Gotham, Huntress, in an effort to abolish Gotham's drug racket around the Highland Hills suburban area where she works as a teacher, intends to go undercover as a mob decapo, using her family's history in the underworld with Oracle's help.
