Synopsis

Superman cauterises Wonder Woman’s neck wound but as he prepares to leave the battlefield to save her life Flash reminds him he is needed here and that he will take Diana to get help. Reluctantly Clark agrees.

Meanwhile Cyborg comes to in the Palace of Red Lion and sees Deathstroke standing over him, who brings him up to speed on Bland’s plans and that the Justice League had been used as patsies, causing the situation to enable Red Lion and his forces to quietly annex a part of a neighbours country under the guide of protection.

As Flash locates Raven and says they need her to save Wonder Woman from the shrapnel wound in her neck, Cyborg uses a re-boot routine he had secretly installed to get him self fully functioning again, just as Batman and Aquaman teleport in with the captured Fan.

As Red Lion makes his demands to the U.N. he is punched by Cyborg and taken into custody by them. The League then assist in the clear up operation but still debate amongst themselves just where the line should be drawn between getting involved in these types of Geo-political situations.

But while distracted in their discussions they hear a gunshot and turn to see that Deathstroke has apparently shot dead The Fan and and as he races away fully armed tells them that they obviously do not have the stomach for what needs to be done and that he will sort out their problem for them…
