Synopsis

Khalid recounts to the others how he had followed Nabu and heard his plans to wipe out all magic on earth and starve out the Otherkind. He had then been discovered before being trapped. He tells them that escape is now their only option before Myrra too is destroyed.

Meanwhile on Aeaea Circe uses Wonder Woman’s lasso to demonstrate to a disbelieving Zatanna that what she has told her about her father is true.  She reveals how her father had left John Constantine to continue his work and execute his plan in her father’s absence. A stunned Zatanna goes outside to get some fresh air and clear her thoughts but sees one of the Otherkind appear.

Wonder Woman arrives to protect her but she says she cab take care of the creature and entombs it in the dirt. She again asks Crice where they can find Mordru and the witch replies that he has been waiting for centuries for this conflict to unfold and that he will be at home waiting for her. Before Diana can protest Zatanna transports them both away.

As Circe turns to walk back to her castle the Upside Down Man appears and she warns him to keep his distance. He says she must enjoy playing with the mortals like puppets. She replies that she has promised him a great battle of magic and chaos is asserting itself as they speak.  They will all get what they deserve, including Wonder Woman. “As will you” she adds.

Back in Myrra the others are preparing to transport away when one of the Lords of Order appears above them and makes them an offer. The Lords will let them live if they allow their magic and all knowledge of it to be stripped away – meaning that the Otherkind can no longer hunt them down. If they refuse however, they will all die.
