Synopsis for "One Step Forward--Two Steps Back"
Kara has called a meeting of the JSA All-Stars to remind them of Lord's existence. Although their mental block is still in place, they are suspicious enough that they agree to sound the alarm. However, as soon as they jump to action the mental block reasserts itself and wipes all memory of Lord from their minds again. Power Girl forgets why she summoned the team but she feels sad for some reason.
Later, Power Girl has a nightmare in which Divine kills Nicco Cho in the same way Wonder Woman originally killed Max Lord, and she herself is then shot by Lord the same way he murdered Ted Kord. When she wakes up, Cho informs her that he was able to track Divine and Crash to Vietnam through one of Power Girl's nanotech earrings, which came loose in the fight.
Power Girl travels to Vietnam, feeling strangely unfocused, and checks a rundown shack built in the middle of a jungle. Kara finds a Justice League Teleporter inside. Her super-senses detect an energy signature outside, and Power girl uncovers another hidden research facility by freezing-breathing its cloaking device. Professor Ivo appears, and admits that he didn't consider guarding his tropical base against extreme cold. He welcomes Power Girl to the newly revitalized Project Cadmus, and introduces her to a host of vicious monsters he has created.
