Synopsis for "Ladies' Night"
P.H.D. battles against the Ferryman and are without any success in stopping the entity. Fortunately, Black Betty bless the Ferryman's fallen staff with holy water and banish it's owner to back to it's realm by quoting the Nicene Creed, as the Ferryman takes on the Greek mythological figure of Charon objects from the Greek Orthodox Church - which supplanted Greek mythology - harms it. After ridding the Ferryman, Black Betty directs John Doran inside an abandoned building to the original Doomsday Clock as the cause for Ferryman's breach into Earth due to the mysticism surrounding the clock's focus of primal fear for the threat of nuclear Armageddon during the Cold War. She hands the clock to Doran under safe keeping.
Sometime later, Doran gives the Doomsday Clock to Jackson King and recounts problems of the members of P.H.D.: Fahrenheit's frosty relationship with Paris after her discovery of Paris's background; Gorgeous and the Machinist's trusts; and Dr. Shaw's near-breakdown following his ordeal with the Daemonites in Las Vegas. King, however, then advise Doran in having Betty in keeping a watch on some of the P.H.D. members and suggest of using unit integrity through socialization such as the late Jenny Sparks who used to take her teammates out on the town. Encouraged on King's advices, Doran returns to the prescient and gives P.H.D. some R&R, in which he has Betty in having a girls' night out with Gorgeous and Fahrenheit.
At Fahrenheit's suggestion, the ladies goes to Clark's Bar. There the three talk about Fahrenheit's struggle without her powers and then to Betty's relations with her teacher Jeremiah Cain, whom Gorgeous suggest that Betty is having an affair with Cain, but Betty seriously informs her friends that it is not. They are then approach by two supermen Striker and Devlin, whom Fahrenheit embarrassingly recognized them from before, who they offer one of them a dance. Gorgeous willingly volunteers with the duo, which quickly deteriorated as she easily beats them after being sexually touched by Striker.
The three then leaves the bar, but only to be heckle again by Striker and Devlin in which Fahrenheit is knocked in the head with a beer bottle. As Gorgeous and Fahrenheit prepares to fight, Betty ramify the situation by showing Striker and Devlin a mystical tattoo on her chest which induce them into a catatonic state. After dealing with Striker and Devlin, the ladies finish their night out at a greasy spoon before going back to their respective home. Betty returns to Jeremiah Cain's residence in which it is then reveals that Cain is in a coma - his soul/consciousness is astrally projected from his body for some long period of time. She never reveals the truth of her mentor's state to anyone as this knowledge would trigger a number of mystical attacks and invasions, and has been since waiting for Cain's soul return to his body.
