Synopsis

Man-Bat is working late at night, reviewing all the encounters with The Otherkind he has been writing up in his journal over the past few months. The various members of Justice League Dark have encountered numerous disturbing and horrific creatures and Kirk begins to wonder whether it is these stories of The Otherkind themselves which are allowing them to spread their fear and infect the world.

Meanwhile in another reality Zatara tells Saragon that their eternal fight is pointless and that The Otherkind are on their world. He takes the Ruby of Life embedded in Saragon’s turban and sends it through a rip in reality back to earth where Kirk finds it on his desk.

Intrigued, he decides he will tell Zatanna about it in the morning and leaves the room, switching off the light. But  The Upside Down Man has been watching his every move…
