Synopsis for "Seasons Beatings"
Pied Piper continues to travel across the Chihuahuan Desert with the now deceased Trickster, due to the fact that they are still hand-cuffed together. During the night, Pied Piper, delirious from the heat, begins to imagine Trickster's corpse is talking to him and removes Trickster's hand from his body to avoid triggering the bomb.
In Themyscira, having wandered inside a cave outside the confines of the island's training ground, Harley and Holly discover the cave is being used as a hideout by Hippolyta, who reveals to the two of them that Athena is a fake. Meanwhile a Amazon reports to "Athena" about Harley and Holly's disappearance, and Athena reveals herself to be Granny Goodness, who then orders her Female Furies to punish the Amazon. In the cave, Harley, Holly and Hippolyta kill a war hound that has found their hideout. Hippolyta then decides to send Holly and Harley to infiltrate Athena's ranks to expose the fraud. Harley and Holly used a severed leg of the war hound to fool Athena that they were only helping to "keep morale up." In response to their dedication, Athena believes their story.
On Apokolips, Jimmy Olsen is attacked by a mad Forager, due to undergoing a "waking trance" during her torture, and Jimmy is able to restore her sanity by duplicating a Mother Box. The two of them are then confronted by Bernadeth, who is then later confronted and presumably killed by the Infinity Man. Jimmy manages to open a Boom Tube and returns to Earth with Forager, whereupon he kisses her.
