Synopsis for "Life of Purpose"

Iris West tells her nephews that Barry Allen disappeared with Justice League Incarnate. She initially wasn't worried, as superheroes can sometimes be away on missions for weeks at a time, but with the news that the Justice League is dead, she's afraid. Wally promises her that they will find him, but in the meantime they need to deal with the supervillains who are taking advantage of the League's absence. He takes Wallace out on a patrol around the world to keep the younger hero's mind off the situation, cracking jokes and expressing hope along the way to prevent their fear and worry paralyzing them. After he and Wallace split up, Wally takes a moment to visit Barry's statue outside the Flash Museum and feel concerned about his missing mentor, then runs off to respond to the next distress call.

Synopsis for "Survivors"

Hal Jordan, who has been on a mission in deep space, chases an alien infested with ravenous aquatic parasites back to Earth. When the alien dives into the Atlantic Ocean he calls Aquaman for help, but Jackson Hyde responds rather than Arthur Curry and tells Hal that the Justice League are missing, presumed dead. Jackson is able to separate the parasites from the alien but tells Hal that he cannot help him or the other surface heroes any further as he is needed in Atlantis.
