Synopsis for "Deadshot: Dark Passage"
Having just discovered Floyd Lawton had escaped Belle Reve, Amanda Waller reviews the tapes and they discover that he had used the cutlery delivered with his food to fashion a scalpel leading him to surgically removing the implant in his cell. With it removed he blew the doors open and stole the guard's armour - Waller had walked straight past him.
Lawton escaped to visit his daughter Suchin and they spend some time together while Lawton plans their escape. He heads to the Gotham Docks where he confronts several gangsters and kills them all before driving away with all the loot.
Elsewhere, Will Evans completes a contract and goes to collect his pay which is a reduced rate as the employer reveals that Lawton is still alive.
Ready to leave his life of assassinations behind, Lawton shaves his head and goes to fetch Suchin but instead he only finds a note and the head of a stuffed panda toy he gave her.

Synopsis for "Katana in: Call her... Halo"
King Kobra reveals he has kidnapped an Aurakle - an alien creature which he planned to weaponize. Past plans had failed so he decided to bind the Aurakle to Violet Harper who he had been keeping comatose for this very purpose. He leaves Dr. Jace to this task before returning to the ship's command.
One of the ship's officers tells King Kobra how they had used their ship to eradicate the Suicide Squad due to them using the corrupted signal however they had to de-cloak the Ark. Simultaneously the Prince of Markovia leads a tank-assault onto the air-ship causing chaos internally, and provides the perfect distraction for the Squad (who were hiding on the next hill) to sneak aboard.
The other members of the Squad were unable to find the Ark once it recloaked itself, instead they take a smaller shuttle ship and crash it straight into the Ark and they begin their assault on the ship. Katana soon rejoins her allies but King Kobra appears and fights the team, meanwhile Enchantress and Katana race to find Violet but they are too late and she is fused with the immortal being gifting Violet powers but she rejects Katana's help before King Kobra uses his energy disruption weapon to engage an implant he had inserted into Violet's neck. She tears the explosive out and discards it before collapsing, Katana considers ending her life as a mercy but the Aurakle speaks through Violet, revealing its plans for revenge.
