Synopsis for "Come Back To Me, Part Seven: A Royal Pain"
The TSB Federation tells Princess Sibella she is under arrest and will be killed along with those accompanying her if she doesn't surrender peacefully. Diana tells Steve not to intervene as they're outmatched, while Sibella states she doesn't remember stealing her starship along with the crew and states the people with her have nothing to do with it. The TSB Federation soldiers realize they're telling the truth but regardless have to arrest her. Sibella's robots rush to stop them despite her telling them not to, and she gets knocked out by them after they override her command to desist from attacking.
Diana and her compatriots run away during the firefight, but the TSB soldiers send flying spinning blades after them. She tells everyone to split up to evade them more easily and falls off a cliff's edge along with Steve while escaping a blade. After emerging out of the water, she is unable to find Steve and dives underwater to search for him. She rescues him after finding him drowning and takes him to a beach where he wakes up in the morning. Diana tells him that though they were able to escape, they've lost contact with the others.
As they go to find their compatriots, Steve learns Diana's ankle has healed and time on the island passes faster while people from different timelines are showing up here. She thinks that what happened to them and others happened for a purpose, stating how she lost him and then how she was made to follow him while taking away her powers, how Jonah lost Tallulah, with strange incidents happening every time they get some relief. Steve wonders if it's the same as the TV show about a similar TV entertainment show, making Diana realize they're in a game for others' entrainment. They soon come upon Atlantis which has mysteriously appeared near the island and Aquaman battling the monsters attacking it.
Two mysterious people who are watching what's happening praise the choices picked for the island and state it's time. As Aquaman spots Diana, he gets thrown far away by a monster before they can help. Steve tells Diana to run as they get attacked, but get mysteriously teleported to a spaceship before they can be harmed. As they fall unconscious, they are placed in cryostasis along with their comrades who have also been abducted.

Four years ago, a terminally ill David Graves consults his Doctor about his worsening condition. The Doctor tells him that his body is failing, and wonders why he hasn't contacted the Justice League, as they could potentially help him if they knew how he became sick. David says that the League cannot help him, and shoots his doctor, believing that he can only save himself.
Four years later, in Washington, D.C., Colonel Steve Trevor is stopped outside a liquor store by two paparazzi who ask about Wonder Woman dumping him and whether it was due to her attraction to another member of the Justice League. After punching one of them, Steve goes to his sister's house for dinner, showing how much he cares for her and her children.

She offers to buy tacos for some of her friends while Clark is left alone at his office and remnisces about being left alone in high school. He then receives a text message from Bruce Wayne asking if he has any "lunch plans."
At Arkham Asylum, Batman and Superman work together to subdue the chaos caused by the released prisoners, and attempt to find the Key. Cyborg arrives, and pulls up the prison's schematics in order to locate their intruder.
Steve Trevor arrives at his apartment, only to find the TV on. Thinking someone is there, he draws his gun and a mysterious figure approaches him and kidnaps him.

Back at Arkham, Superman, Batman, and Cyborg find the Key, who tells them that he broke into Arkham so he could escape from a mysterious attacker.
Both villains then reveal that they were both confronted by an individual who wanted to know the Justice League's weaknesses. This man was named "Graves".
