The Six decide to raid a Society safehouse on their own against Mockingbird's orders. Before Mockingbird can kill their families though, they propose a counter-offer to him: they go against the Society on a suicide run. If they live, they are free from Mockingbird's influence. If they die, then they die with Mockingbird's enemies. Before that happens, Catman discovers it was Deadshot that killed his lions, that Scandal is gay, and that not only is Cheshire carrying Catman's child, but she has betryaed them to the Society. The Society responds by sending an army of super-villains to kill the Six. Additionally, the Society has kidnapped Pariah and Lady Quark.
