Synopsis

Diana and Cheetah make their way through the rain forest watched by the Bouda, followers of the God Urzkartaga. Wonder Woman explains to her friend that the true Olympus is not closed off to her and that she also cannot find her way back to Themyscira  – which is why she needs Barbara’s help. The Cheetah is wary and at first their “friendship” appears to be be an uneasy one but Diana begins to earn her trust.

Meanwhile Steve and his men do what they can to tend to the village wounded and then he tells them that they are going to pursue Cadulo’s men and return all the girls safely back to their parents. But as they follow the trail they arrive at an ominous looking, mist shrouded mountain which was not on their maps. Nevertheless Steve orders his men forward…

Back in the forest Wonder Woman and Cheetah are moving as fast as possible to make the cover of the temple but are attacked by the Bouda, who are intent on making them blood sacrifices to their god.

As they fight Cheetah takes spear and the Amazon Princess rushes to the aid of her friend, fighting off the large numbers of Bouda. But when she finally returns to where Cheetah had been laying she sees that Barbara is devouring the corpse of one of the Bouda. Diana pulls her away and struggles to persuade her that she is not an animal and that she is better than this. Finally Cheetah gives in and weeping, tells the Amazon Princess that the Urzkartaga wants her dead and asks for her help in killing him – and free her from this curse. In return she will help Diana find her way home. Wonder Woman agrees.

Meanwhile at Cadulo’s lair, the warlord looks on at his new captors…Steve and his men!
