Synopsis
As Amanda's scientists work to extract an unconscious General Zod from the Black Vault, a bloodlust overcomes all within Belle Reve, driving everyone insane with a murderous rage. However, Harley, who was already insane, seems to be affected in the opposite way: she becomes sane and realizes that she must stop everyone else from killing each other.
