Synopsis for "Redemption Lost, Part 3"
The JSA fights a legion of zombies release by the Spirit King who has recently possessed the body of The Flash who viciously assaults his teammates. Meanwhile, Father Craemer counsels Jordan to find a path between redemption and vengeance so he can reclaim the powers of the Spectre and banish the lost souls plaguing Portsmouth City. Once he gives in to vengeance, he easily reclaims the vicious souls and leaves.
In Cross Clinic, Doctor Mid-Nite struggles to save Mister Terrific's life after the horrible beating he received.
