Synopsis for "Godwatch, Part 3"
Rochester, Minnesota, The Mayo Clinic
The Cyclades, Greece, The Island of Naxos
Seven years since Diana left Themyscira, Wonder Woman is fighting former friend and now nemesis Barbara Ann Minerva, the Cheetah. She does not know that Barbara also works for Cale, stealing her ancient powerful items that Veronica needs to make rites, trying to find alternate solutions to bring her daughter back from Deimos and Phobos' limbo.
Empire Industries, Washington D.C.
Cheetah's last job was to bring to Veronica the last ingredient for a rite necessary to summon the witch Circe: once she appeared, she strikes a deal with Cale, who wants to bind Deimos and Phobos, snatching their scepter from them. In it there is a soulstone, containing the soul of Izzy: she wants Circe to free her after she bound the two twins. Circe tells her that to succeed she must follow every instruction she delivers her to the letter, as the rite is complex and failing would probably mean godly wrath towards both of them.
Trying to stop a terrorist attack, Diana is tricked from Circe to use the Lasso on her: once she has contact with it, she can perform the ritual she promised to Veronica, binding Phobos and Deimos to a couple of dogs. Then, getting back to Washington, she realizes that the soulstone is broken, telling Veronica Izzy's soul is no longer in there. The twins are threatened and in their state they must answer: Izzy is imprisoned together with Ares, Phobos and Deimos father, the matter that led them to this crazy scheme as they want him to be free. The only way to get Isadore back is to free the God of War, unleashing eternal violence on Earth: Circe wants to stay out of this, but Veronica does not care and she will do what she has to have her daughter back.
