Synopsis for "Blood, Bullets and Buses"
With the infected breaching the orphanage, the survivors retreat inside. Grundy attacks and decapitates the infected Bane before holding back the horde from entering the building. This allows the others to head for the school buses before Creeper saves Grundy. With their sanctuary compromised, Gordon proposes to leave for Poison Ivy's jungle in Gotham. The survivors travel to Gotham with Red Hood and Ravager leading the caravan in the Batmobile.
But during the journey, the survivors are attacked by Mirror Master through the buses' windows and he takes two children into the Mirror World. Mirror Master's threat quickly comes to an end when Cheetah punches her claws through his head while saving Matilda, an orphan whom Cheetah takes a close liking. The survivors finally arrive in Gotham and meets the entire city's infected that is blocking their way to the jungle. Jason has the Batmobile to plow through the infected, but only for the car to be wrecked by the infected Wonder Woman.
Cheetah along with Grundy and Creeper engages against Wonder Woman. Slade orders Gordon to have everyone on the first bus onto the second bus, as he plans to drive the leading bus to clear a path through the infected and trying to rescue Rose and Jason. Cassandra helps in getting the orphans onto the bus but she is then swarm by infected. Lady Shiva sees her daughter in trouble and has Letitia to drive the bus as she goes to rescue Cassandra. She and Cassandra fight off the infected and long enough to get back on the bus; however, Shiva is slashed from behind. Knowing that she will succumb to the Anti-Life Equation, Shiva tells Cassandra that she is the only person she admired before tearing out her own heart.
Slade and Gordon manage to get Rose and Jason out of the Batmobile, but the battle against the infected worsen as Wonder Woman kills Cheetah, Creeper, and Grundy. The bus is damaged in midst of the battle, forcing Slade to personally hold off the infected and allowing the others to head for the remaining bus but not before Rose has her last hug with her father. Slade is soon torn apart by Wonder Woman, leaving nothing of him to regenerate. With Slade dead, Wonder Woman turns her attention on the bus, taking it into the air and throwing it to the earth.
But before the bus hits the ground, one of the orphans shouts "Shazam!" The bus is safely lifted in the air by Mary Marvel. She was the hero who imprisoned the infected Billy Batson and helped in securing the orphanage; Mary did not chose to turn to Mary Marvel due to her fears of being corrupted by the Equation after sawing what happened to Billy, until now. Thanks to her three months of training with Cassandra, Mary battles and defeats Wonder Woman.
Mary then lifts the bus to the jungle, where they are greeted by Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn along with several other survivors including Doctor Fate, Zatanna, and John Constantine. Ivy and Fate reassures the survivors that the garden is magically enchanted to keep out Wonder Woman and other empowered infected from entering. Sometime later, the Bludhaven survivors constructed a memorial to the former villains who sacrificed their lives in saving them.
