Synopsis for "Judgement Day: Part 3 of 3"
Atrocitus meets Sheko and tries to get her to join him. Sheko appears to listen to his pitch but then she invades his mind, scans his memories and decides she cannot judge him because his moral standards are completely different from her kind's.
While Atrocitus tries to entice her into coming with him, Kara goes ahead with her plan: she takes the tank of lake blood and rips it open over the city. Blood rains down and douses Sheko, who collapses. Unfortunately Atrocitus is able to control the blood and makes it into a maelstrom which proceeds to ravage the city further.
The Red Lanterns are appalled at the destruction, but before Guy can figure out a plan, Kara -who hates Atrocitus and wants him to pay for creating the Reds- says she can fix it. So she ignites the blood tornado with heat vision... which unfortunately sets the city on fire instead of evaporating the blood.
Bleez slaps Kara and tells her she needs to grow up: wearing a Red Ring is a struggle and she cannot give in to every impulse. For his part, Guy adds that being a Red isn't about being angry all the time but being angry for the right reasons and doing something about it. Then he points out that if Kara doesn't want to be called a kid then she mustn't become a trouble they have to solve. He knows she is better than that. Grudgingly, Kara agrees that her teammates are right.
Once finished that argument, Skallox comes up with a plan to deal with the ignited blood tornado. Using blood magic, the team manages to will the maelstrom away. However, most of city has been leveled and burnt to the ground. Kara feels horribly guilty, but Guy disagrees. It's everybody's fault and they'll what they can to help the Primeen people after dealing with Atrocitus.
The Reds fly down and confront their former leader. Guy wants to "kick his ass again", but Atrocitus reminds them that he has Rankorr, and informs that a new Red called Klarn has been instructed to kill him unless Atrocitus and Dex-Starr return soon. Reluctantly, the Reds let him go. Before flying away, Atrocitus gloats over his revenge plans, and Guy retorts that worse than Atrocitus have tried and failed to take him down.
The battle over, the Primeen citizens begs the Reds to leave. Kara wants to stay and help, but they reiterate that they only want the Reds gone, making Kara feel disappointed and devastated because she wanted to be a hero and only added to the chaos instead.
