Synopsis for "Limbo"
The essence of Raven's soul-self appears before Donna Troy pleading for help. She explains to Donna how the fallen angel Asmodel has taken control of the Spirit of Vengeance known as the Spectre. In her efforts to assist, Raven was violently dispelled from the gates of Heaven. Donna agrees to help her in any way that she can.
Meanwhile, a young boy named Rodman has aligned himself with the super-villain Goth. Rodman wants Goth to take him to the nether-region of Dis, but they have discovered that all roads to Hell have been cut off.
Back at the Tower, Chanda Madan has a conversation with Roy Harper. She loves working for him and loves babysitting little Lian, but as a Quraci, she cannot look past the fact that Lian's mother, Cheshire, was responsible for nuking her home country. Roy tries to understand Chanda's concerns, and the two talk things over.
In a secret lair, the H.I.V.E. Mistress consults with her major domo Damien Dahrk. The Mistress is displeased with Dakhrk's recent efforts to keep their colleagues out of prison. Dahrk taunts the Mistress by saying, "You don't want to risk losing another son, do you?"
Elsewhere, members of Vandal Savage's Tartarus hunt down Deathstroke the Terminator. Gorilla Grodd bars his path, enabling the rest of the team the chance to take turns pummeling at him. Deathstroke manages to eventually escape however and makes his way to Titans Tower.
At S.T.A.R. Labs, Cyborg has a conversation with Sarah Charles. She is still unsettled at seeing Cyborg fused with the Omegadrome and she has difficulty forgetting that he only recently let himself be consumed by it in a bid to take over the world.
Meanwhile, Raven and Donna Troy once again try to pierce the veil of Heaven. They are shocked to find that neither of them may enter. Donna questions whether or not she even has a soul. Raven gives her affirmation and reminds her of the unique qualities of her own existence.
In the city, Rodman is still furious because he is stuck in this apparent Limbo. Goth pays him little attention and is more amused with the current affairs of the afterlife in general. Finally, Rodman's complaining becomes too much for him, and Goth obliges the boy's wishes by slitting his throat.
