Synopsis

As Bobo is lead away in chains to a prison cell, Blue Devil explains to the others how the chimp had abandoned Myrra and left the door open for the dead, which now attack the city walls nightly in hope of overwhelming the citizens who now cower behind the city walls.

Meanwhile John and Swamp Thing watch as Phantom Stranger and Doctor Fate battle each other. But Nabu removes his helmet and traps the Stranger inside.

Back in Myrra Zatanna tells Blue Devil that she might be able to fix things if she can access the spell books and have the other warlocks of the land assist her. Blue Devil says he will ask them but they all want Bobo executed.

Wonder Woman visits the remorseful Chimp in his cell, who recounts to her how he had been trying to do the right thing by using magic to resurrect James Rook, the Nightmaster, as Bobo knew he, himself, was not capable of looking after Myrra. But his spell had gone wrong and he had run away as the dead invaded the land. He tells her he deserves to die but she replies they all have regrets and that they need his help. She then rips off the prison door and let shim out.

As the dead manage to break through the gates Wonder Woman and Blue Devil leave to join the guards in protecting the enclave as Bobo studies the spell books to work out what he had missed the last time.

Back on Earth, John tells Swamp Thing to leave as the endgame is approaching and before Doctor Fate imprisons him in the helmet too, he leaves a message for Zatanna to find Mordru.

In Myrra, Bobo manages to send the dead back to where they came and with the land safe once more, he leave sit in Blue Devil’s care. As the League return to the Oblivion Bar however they are met by Swamp Thing, who tells them that John has fallen and that the Otherkind are here!
