As Green Lantern struggles to minimize the damage the bomb placed in Green Arrow's building does, Black Canary joins him. Elsewhere, Green Arrow abandons his old life and enters a monastery. Back home, while looking for traces of GA, Black Canary stumbles across the remnants of the racist cult of which she was once a member, now led by Sister Joshua. She is attacked by the cult members and thrown off a roof, but saved by the last minute appearance of Green Lantern.
