Synopsis for "Year One, Part Four"
Steve and Etta want to bring Diana out of jail, to let her see the world and to get her accustomed to the american culture. They obtain a six hour leave, and they bring her to the mall, together with Barbara Minerva as she is the only one able to communicate with her. Diana thinks the mall is wonderful: the loudness, the air, the people. But she is also disturbed a little by images of half-naked women in a bikini and girls going around in high heels, as she clearly does not understand why proud women should dress like that. After making friends with a pair of children, she has dinner with her friends and discovers that thanks to the Lasso of Truth, she can learn English. Also, when the four of them take hold of the Lasso, they start telling their sincere opinion on one another.
Then, a shooting starts: five men with automatic rifles. Diana automatically jumps to the rescue and defeats them all, saving a family. Impressed by her, the media tries to overwhelm her, but Steve and Barbara protect her. Then, watching one of the terrorist, they see a tattoo on their chest: a symbol of a dying tree. Both Diana and Barbara comment they saw that symbol themselves, and Steve informs there it's the sign of the SEAR Group.
