Synopsis for "Techno-Takedown"
In Star Labs in Detroit, Cyborg and his allies are facing the Technosapiens. Cyborg insisted he had a plan, but the plan turned out to be a frontal assault. Sarah, the leader of the rebels, is angry at this as Cyborg jumps over the fight to find the Technosapien leaders. They are gloating as their soldiers swarm him.
However, Cyborg has a plan after all. Using his newly adaptable cybernetic body, he sprouts a number of cables and connects himself to multiple Technosapiens. He swiftly hacks into the network that links the nefarious cyborgs together, and starts rewriting codes. As they franticly try to stop him, he wonders how many worlds they have conquered. And how many of those worlds would have survived if they had tried a non-physical method of defense.
As the Technosapiens fall over, begging for Cyborg's mercy, Sarah decides to take advantage by leveling her weapon on a nearby opponent. However, Platinum of the Metal Men goes to stop her: the cyborg she is aiming at is Will Magnus, the man she came here to save. An argument starts, but is immediately defused by Sebastian and Tin.
Cyborg is succeeding, but his power source overloads and causes an explosion which knocks his opponents over and turns him into a massive scarred blob. However, his regeneration protocols kick in, allowing his body to completely rebuild itself. Sarah finds him, fully human - but as soon as he sees her, he changes his appearance, so that he looks like his old cyborg self. Sarah asks what he did, and he says that he deactivated the Technosapiens cybertech in all the victims, so they should be fine. Sarah specifies - hat has he done to himself. Cyborg admits that his repair protocols could make him normal, but that being a half-metal man is the most he is willing to show the world right now.
Sarah says that she has to leave, as Technosapiens escaped back into the Bleed and she means to follow them. However, he should not be afraid to show the truth to this universe's Sarah. Both Sarahs are the same person, and as much as she has tried to hate him... she loves Victor Stone.
As emergency services arrive to look after people, Cyborg puts in a call to the Justice League. Its various members congratulate him on a job well done, but Wonder Woman asks him how he is. He waves off her concern, saying that others are more hurt than he is. The Technosapiens that escaped have vanished, but they know to guard against them now. Sarah's rebels have also left to track them down. We see Will Magnus is getting medical aid, and the remaining Technosapiens who were left behind being collected by a group in biohazard protection.
Cyborg goes to talk to his father and Sarah Charles, who say they know his secret. As Cyborg's nerve race, they say the secret is that he is a hero.
Sebastian is letting his friend Bobby, who was converted by the Technosapiens, crash on his couch for a few days. As Bobby settles into an empty living room, he complains aloud that the only reason he went to them as because he wanted to be healed... just as his left arm moves, showing something similar to Cyborg's repair protocols, and grows its missing hand, must to Bobby delight.
In a tracksuit at sundown, Cyborg sits on a stoop. His cat, Smokey, comes to cuddle him, and he shows the cat his secret - he can pass for normal. It is not a secret he wants to show the world, but it is a good secret, and that is enough for now.
