In New York City, Plastique ushers Terry McGinnis into a pizza place, urging him to go to this time's Batman for help in preventing the future of Brother Eye.

In Oakland, California, Cole Cash reacts with frustration when the Earth Registration Authority refuses to acknowledge that he is not dead, and treats him instead as Lana Lang's husband from Earth 2. Cole insists that they let him plead his case before a board of inquiry, until he learns that it would mean spending six months in custody. Faced with that, Cole agrees to accept an identity as Lana's husband, and get an Earth-Card.
On the ruins of Cadmus Island, armed soldiers have set up a base, while Fifty Sue hides out in a bunker, angrily condemning Brother Eye for allowing Slade Wilson - her father figure - to be killed by someone other than her.

Back in New York, Dr. Yamazake has survived the incident in his lab to seek revenge on Firestorm and the Justice League. Trapped within a magnetic field, he builds a suit for himself to wear and makes for to return to his lab.

Nearing Earth's orbit, Ray Palmer is ecstatic to discover that he's got himself and his companions home, despite pursuit by Brainiac's drones. Unfortunately, they can't get home, because something has latched onto the Carrier's hull. They watch as it grows and grows, and they realize with surprise that it's the Ant Farm. They are greeted, then, by Father Time and S.H.A.D.E. She explains that she has come to ask that they hand over the valuable weapon they brought back with them, pointing directly at The Engineer. She explains that something very bad is coming, and only Angela can stop it. If they do not hand her over, however, S.H.A.D.E. will unleash every monster they've ever collected on the rogue agents to claim her.
