Synopsis for "The Witching War, Part 4"
While possessing Diana's body, Circe remembers how she obtained Hecate's witch-mark in the fist place: she was a young, beautiful princess who had to marry the prince of Colchis, revealing himself to be an animal under a human guise. She killed him and for it, she was despised and kicked out of Colchis: she was full of spite and she navigated the sea without eating, drinking or sleeping. She was moving only because of her thinking about vengeance on those that hurt her. And she prayed for a power able to destroy them, a prayer answered by Hecate. Now, in the present, she is near to her final objective, as she holds in her hands the Black Diamond of Eclipso without anyone suspecting her.
She goes up to the meeting room with the Diamond, and then Bobo tells her about what happened to Kirk and Swamp Thing: her reaction betrays her and Bobo tells Zatanna to freeze her as he knows something different then Diana came back from the trip in the Collective Unconscious. But Circe understood earlier what was going to happen, and used her power to shut the mouth of Zatanna permanently. Still, Zee rips her mouth open with a blade and then tells a formula to bring the Diamond back to its place, so that Circe cannot use it. The Injustice League Dark then appears, and the fight starts. Meanwhile, in the Collective Unconscious, Diana gets a visit from the terrible Upside-Down Man.
