Batman tries to use Jarro to connect with Starman, feeling guilty about having lost the Totality to the Legion of Doom but Superman and Wonder Woman stop him before he almost kills himself.
Meanwhile on Thanagar, Hawkgirl, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter are initially greeted with warmth by the ruler, Shayera Hol who confirms that the Martian Keep is indeed dead and tells Kendra that she cannot help in deciphering the writing and symbols on her wrings.
But Hawkgirl accidentally connects with Shayera telepathically and discovers that she has been lying all along and that the Thanagarans are actually holding an alive Martian Keep prisoner.
The heroes rush to free her but are attacked on the way and Hawkman appears. Shayera then orders him to kill Hawkgirl.
At that moment back on Earth Starman wakes up and Superman warms them that he is about to explode!
