Synopsis for "Children of the Gods, Part 2"
The Paris Catacombs
A.R.G.U.S. Central Command, Four Hours Earlier
All began after A.R.G.U.S. found and examined Hercules' body: they found tracks of energy coming from Apokolips, as now A.R.G.U.S. looks out for this kind of energy signature, as it is linked with Darkseid. For Diana, the connection between the two things is obvious: the only inhabitant of Apokolips she knows is connected to Ancient Greece is Grail, daughter of Darkseid and of an Amazon. Diana already met her, and also knows that Darkseid was reincarnated in a child, as she witnessed the fact herself. Dr. Peril also shows them several other bodies, all killed with the same energy signature: Hercules was not the first, he was only the first well known to A.R.G.U.S.; soon after, communication of a parademon attack in Paris comes, leading to the battle Diana is taking part in, a battle she has won and that confirmed Grail is involved in something big.
Elexinor, Oregon, the Home of Hercules
Traveling towards Hercules' former residence alongside Mr. Hooper, Diana reveals him she's a bit disoriented by the whole thing, especially because she knew Hercules only by reputation. She surely thinks that Zeus, as always, proved himself a great god but a really bad father, at least she hasn't had any proof saying otherwise. Hooper then gives Diana a letter, where Hercules personally addressed why he chose Diana as his heir: the is truly a woman of Wonder, as she is a hero and she is respected by everyone. Hercules tells he is not proud of everything he did, especially many time ago, and that some of his mistakes haunted him at the point that he decided it was better for the world if he lived in loneliness, like a coward. Diana would never do that, and this is something Hercules admires about her. She reveals her she has a twin brother, grew up together with Glaucus, an old friend of Hercules. This brother's name is Jason: suddenly, Diana remembers that Myrina Black, the mother of Grail, once told her about Jason but, with all that happened in her life, Diana questioned it, thinking it was part of all the deception thrown at her by her patrons. Finding the coordinates for the place where her brother lives inside the had of the Nemea Lion, Diana travels to the Aegean Coast.
The Aegean Coast
In Greece with Hooper, Diana is taken back to the images of Themyscira, a place she once believed was right here, in the Mediterranean Sea. Trying to explain to Blake what happened to her home, Diana finds herself again a little confused on the matter. After finding out Jason was out with his crew, fishing, Diana takes off her coat and flies towards her ship. When she is near him, she just feels a link and approaches him, telling to not be afraid, but Jason feels that connection, that bound as well and he welcomes her sister with open arms.
