Synopsis for "The Carpocalypse"
At Eddie's Bar in Los Angeles, a man named Mikel sneaks into the back room and through a hole in the wall to a special area where hired killers come to drink. In the back, he meets with Slade Wilson. Mikel intends to exchange money for the contents of the briefcase that Slade stole on his last mission. When Slade reveals that what is in his briefcase is not "nuclear secrets," as he was told, Mikel believes that Deathstroke failed the mission and is trying to dupe him.
Angrily, Deathstroke unsheathes his sword, and warns Mikel that somebody has played him, and if he doesn't find out who, he will kill him. Nervously, Mikel turns to the other patrons, and reminds them that he paid all of them to kill Slade if need be. Deathstroke sees it as a challenge, and easily kills all of the assassins as Mikel makes his escape.
Mikel gets into his car and demands to be driven to the airport. As he drives away, Deathstroke activates an explosive device on the road that he had planted there earlier, sending Mikel's car out of control. With the car flipped, Mikel desperately calls his employers for help. He barely makes it out of the car alive when Deathstroke throws a grenade through the smashed window.
Finally, a huge aircraft lands nearby, opening fire on Slade, giving him a challenge. He easily deals with two motorcyclist assassins, before a voice catches his attention. A man clad in a metal suit made of car parts calling himself Road Rage begins pursuing him. Slade manages to get the drop on him, launching the assailant toward Mikel, as he tries to grab a dangling ladder from the aircraft. Unfortunately for Mikel, Road Rage smashes into the aircraft, and its propeller veers toward Mikel, slicing him to pieces.
As the news media arrive on the scene, Deathstroke faces the camera and challenges the people who played him to keep coming for him, demonstrating his capability as a killer. He calls his manager Cristoph, who expresses surprise that Deathstroke orchestrated the whole thing as a means of showing that he can handle any mission. Now, though, he has to call in an expert to find out about his briefcase.
