Synopsis for "Heart of the Amazon, Part Two"

Arlington, Virginia

Wonder Woman just shielded a young girl from the explosion of a bomb placed inside the party room of Etta Candy's brother, who just had his wedding. While Diana asks herself what monster could place a device like that in a wedding party, she searches for little Destiny that fortunately is all right. After securing the place, Di finds out Etta was severely injured in the explosion and with the hospital too far away, she brings her to the Picket where Dr. Crawford can perform a quick surgery on her. As Candy is out of danger, Crawford reveals herself as the head behind the attack: she knew that Diana would be lured there if Etta got injured, and thanks to that she was able to inject Diana with an Amazon-strength suppression serum she developed. While Diana is unconscious, the doctor explains she is dying from a rare genetic disease, but maybe Diana's Amazonian DNA could be the key to develop a cure that could save thousands. With her completely knocked out, she can perform the experiments she needs.

Once she woke up, Diana found out that Dr. Crawford modified herself with her DNA, stealing her powers and becoming a mutated version of a true Amazon. After fighting her, the touch of the Lasso changed back her DNA, recognizing the Amazon part as stolen, thus false. Without the power of Diana, the doctor decides to commit suicide, bearing no hope for the resolution of her health problems even if Diana told her she would help her find one. As her last words, Dr. Crawford tells Diana to tell Etta Candy she is sorry for what she did at her and her family. To respect her promise and to give comfort to an hurt friend, Diana visits Etta in the hospital, watching a sitcom and eating cookies with her. Meanwhile, a mysterious hitman watches Diana, ready to kill her.
