Back on eath Diana has another nightmare and wakes up in the middle of the night and finds Donna Troy, also awake due to a nightmare. After asking about the nightmare, Diana figures out that it's Circe who has been implanting the dreams in their minds. Knowing where Circe would be waiting, Diana goes to Athens, Greece to confront Circe. During the start of the battle, Circe shows that she's master, using her powers on herself to change her appearance and powers. After a long battle, Wonder Women over comes Circe's transformations and magic powers, all the while telling Diana to kill her. As the battle ends, Circe's daughter Lyta consoles her mother and tells her that she never wants her to be hurt or leave her.

Elsewhere the joined matron goddesses of the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall and the Amazons of Paradise Island watch Diana's fight. They declare they've been absent from their champion's life for too long and are going to return to welcome her home.
