    Superman and Martian Manhunter are overseeing construction of a base on the moon when Superman gets a distress signal and has to leave. Later, Manhunter returns "home" to Metropolis and his life as John Jones, detective with the Metropolis Police. He encounters a neighbor and her son, helps her carry her groceries and gives the boy a bit of a lesson in duty and obligation. Then, alone again in his own apartment and reminiscing about his lost Martian family, Manhunter is overcome with some kind of mental/emotional aggravation and uncontrollably morphs into his true Martian form as he writhes on the floor in apparent agony. Over in Gotham City, Batman and Nightwing are busy busting up a gang called The Mutants when Nightwing encounters a large alien creature in the middle of strangling a homeless man. She intervenes and is dealt a savage blow before Batman arrives and startles the creature into fleeing. Batman returns with Nightwing to the Batcave, sedates and stabilizes her, and proceeds to try and decipher a message the alien left behind. Just as he concludes that he can't decipher the message because the language is not of this Earth, John Jones arrives and declares that the language is in fact Martian.

    Together in the Watchtower tower, Oliver wants to be Batman while budding ace marksman Chloe doesn't want to talk about why they haven't told anyone about the pregnancy. Westbound over the Atlantic Ocean, meanwhile, Bart tells Clark about the demonic creature he has been seeing while using his superspeed and how it started when he was trapped by Lex in that cage and forced to run incessantly lest he be electrocuted. Getting Clark to race him around the world, he says, was a test to see whether Clark could also see the creature and, thus, whether he is "crazy." Clark assures him he isn't and commits to finding a way to confront the creature. Meanwhile, Lois, convinced Lex is up to no good, is investigating an abandoned Luthorcorp industrial site, which has apparently remained demolished and unreclaimed all this time. At the site, where Lois has just arrived, a cleanup crew finds some kryptonite, the smashed glass walls of Bart's old cage and some weird red, yellow and black crackling energy on the ground. One of the crew members bends down to investigate and is encompassed in a kind of multi-colored-energy cyclone. Lois yells for somebody to call an ambulance and then rushes to help. But the crew member is dead... his body aged considerably!

Bart flirts with one Sivanna of the research team, then he and Clark mount specially-designed treadmills in an effort to confront the Demon Racer together. They push the limits of their speed until Clark finds himself alone and face to face with the Demon Racer, who tells him his speed is not pure. Then suddenly knocked back into his normal reality, Clark tells Bart he'll find some way to save him, adding "I have to."

    Lois Lane, eating take-out with Superman on the Daily Planet rooftop, informs him about the Lexcorp employee who was aged to death by the speed force and that similar incidents have occurred all around the world in places, Superman deduces, where Bart has been. He needs to talk with an expert. Lois's intern then arrives, scaring Superman away, and reveals that handwriting consultants have determined that the "Help" note Lex Luthor wrote and passed to Lois in his office was written by Tess Mercer. Over at S.T.A.R. Labs, Oliver Queen and Emil Hamilton prepare to attempt one of Lex's "mind dives," using Chloe and the corpse of Chloe-2. The idea is that they're going to see whether Chloe can access any of her counterpart's memories in their efforts to come to terms with what the "Crisis" is. Superman and Impulse, meanwhile, go to the Justice Society of America headquarters/museum, currently under the care of Ma Hunkle, to begin a search for Jay Garrick, the original Flash. Back at S.T.A.R. Labs, the mind dive works and Chloe is witness to deceased Chloe-2's startling memory of seeing Lois-2 disintegrated by the laser from an alien spaceship hovering about the city.

    Bruce Wayne and Detective John Jones are in the middle of a stand-off. They battel back and forward, before Jones extends a friendly hand to Bruce. Below Gotham in the sewers, Bruce, now as Batman, takes Jones to meet Commissioner Jim Gordon and to see where his fight with the White Martian took place earlier that night. Batman reveals that this specific glyph that appeared during the fight has shown up throughout the country dozens of times in the last 18 months. Jones reveals that the symbol is a representation of his true name, J'onn J'onzz. Batman states that it is good that Jones lives alone; otherwise the White Martian may come to attack those he cares about. Realizing that he's not the only one who lives in his apartment building in Metropolis, he quickly flies back to check on his friends. Batman, caught off guard by Jones's sudden leave, calls Chloe at the Watchtower and asks for Superman to help with the situation. Unfortunately, Clark is currently in Utah, so Alfred sends the Bat-Jet in to take Bruce to Metropolis. In Metropolis, John's neighbor Billy hears a noise in Jones's apartment and goes to check on him, only to be attacked by the White Martian. John arrives just in time to save Billy as Batman, who has also arrived, rushes everyone out of the building. John beats on the Martian until it pins him, calling Jones a "murderer". Batman throws a grenade at the creature, which blasts it outside. Bruce asks why the alien called him a "murderer", to which John replies, "Because I am".

    A boy in Mumbai reaches to retrieve his wayward soccer ball, which lies in the grass amid crackling speed force. In France, that same crackling finds a police car, and then the policeman leaning against it. At the Watchtower, Oliver and Chloe are monitoring these fatal "speed incidents," which are apparently increasing. Oliver gets Superman on the line to keep him posted while he and Impulse are out in the Utah desert in search of original Flash, Jay Garrick. Meanwhile, Chloe slips into a kind of trance, reliving Chloe-2's six-year-old memories of Ultraman/Clark Luthor slaughtering meteor freaks in the hallways of Smallville High School. Back in Utah, Bart explains he has no memory of having stolen Jay's identity or anything else before gaining his super-speed. Bart asks Jay if he knows about the "Black Racer." Jay, it turns out, has an intimate familiarity with the "monster," to the point where he stopped running (presumably by allowing a broken leg not to heal correctly) to avoid the encounters. Superman tells Jay that "speed storms" are breaking out everywhere Bart has been, killing people in the process. Jay says he survived the Racer by stopping running. When Bart says that's not an option, Jay tells them the answer is simple: "The boy has to die."

    A few things have gone missing from the Lexcorp building, including Lex Luthor's "mind dive" device, security tapes and even the security guards. Lex suspects Oliver Queen. Switch to Earth-2, two years prior. Oliver is target practicing in the Watchtower while Chloe drinks whiskey on the couch. Oliver is dating Lois, says he plans to propose, and is obviously also very intimate with Chloe, who is better at archery than he is. Back on Earth-1, Chloe tells Oliver about the memory. In Utah, Superman and Jay Garrick discuss Bart's limited options for avoiding or defeating the Racer. The speed incidents are the result of the Racer trying to create a new speedster on which to feed. Bart gets angry at Jay for not having confronted the Racer himself. Chloe calls Superman about a large speed storm in Las Vegas. Emil Hamilton has created a special containment suit designed to augment Superman's speed so he can catch up with the Racer. The suit is blue, and glows. In his new blue suit Superman arrives in Vegas to take on the Black Racer.

    Lois Lane finds Otis at a Metropolis watering hole. Psimon had called Lois to tell her that Tess had asked him not to "dig around" in Lex's mind. But Otis says he neither knows Lois nor trusts her, and isn't about to talk. Lois phones Barbara Gordon and asks her to come to Metropolis and try to get the information out of Otis. Meanwhile, out in Las Vegas, Superman is busy saving citizens affected by the speed storm, the effort charging his new special suit so that he will be able to move fast enough to confront the Racer. When he finally can, the Racer acknowledges his presence and says that while Superman is not "of speed" he will be consumed anyway. They charge each other and bystanders on the outskirts of town are witness to the force of the collision. At Jay Garrick's house in the Utah desert, Bart decides to head to Vegas. Before he leaves, Jay tells him he had the same experience as Bart when he got his powers: he woke up and had five names in his head - his own, Barry Allen, Max Mercury, Wally West and Bart. Jay tells him the same thing happened to them all, and that Bart is not alone. Bart says he's always alone but that "the only kind of family" he has needs his help. And off he races toward Vegas.

    Long ago on Mars the Green and White Martians were at war with one another. J'onn J'onzz fought against the White Martians, but is now the last of the Green Martians to survive. He tells Batman that Jor-El of Krypton found him after this was and give him a purpose again. Back in the Batcave, Alfred gets a call from Bruce asking how Barbara is doing. Batman is relieved she's doing fine. The two discover that the first murder by the White Martian happened at a cabin in the Rocky Mountains, which is conveniently close to Checkmate's base, the Castle. When Batman and Martian Manhunter arrive, they find it still in ruins from when General Zod destroyed it. Batman then throws his Echobats into the Castle and they build a map based off of their scans. They find a launch pad with a rocket inside. But that's not all they find as John stumbles on a dead man's body and Batman upon a child's doll. Batman deduces that when Zod brought the Castle down, that it trapped the man in the launch bay with no way to get out. They find the man's phone and play a message. In the message, they find out that the man is Doctor King Faraday and in his final moments he begs whoever is watching to take care of his daughter.

    The White Martian lunges off its platform at Batman and John Jones. John shapeshifts back into his Martian Manhunter form as Batman tells him to keep the White Martian busy and zips to the platform above. John then, while fighting the creature, has a telepathic conversation with the White Martian. Batman finds the Martian's "nest" and finds Faraday's key-card with a picture clipped to its back. It's revealed that Faraday had a daughter and because of that loss, he bonded with the White Martian over their loss. John then goes into the Martian's mind and sees her memories. We see how she was sent away during the Martian Civil War, we see her landing on Earth and being found by Faraday, and we see how she shapeshifted into Faraday's daughter to help him grieve. Batman disarms his weapons and John proceeds to comfort M'gann. Later at the Batcave, Bruce and Barbara begin to train in the Cave once again, with Alfred smiling at the sight. Back in Metropolis, John and his "niece" Megan go back to his apartment before later flying together in space, John and Megan shift into their natural martian forms of J'onn J'onzz and M'gann M'orzz and fly off to Mars to learn more about their family history.

    On Earth 2, in Chloe's memory, Oliver has called a press conference to reveal that Ultraman is really Clark Luthor and to announce that Queen Industries is going to provide every citizen of Metropolis with a personal amount of "meteor rock" with which to defend themselves from the villain. Meanwhile, Chloe-2 is waiting with a sniper rifle and a Kryptonite bullet with which to shoot Ultraman, whose appearance on the scene is fully expected. And appear he does, fully aware that it's a trap, and snapping Oliver's neck when Chloe fails to shoot for apparent fear of hitting Oliver. On Earth 1, Chloe sheds a tear from the flashback and doesn't want to talk about it with Oliver. She's too busy tracking Bart, who is running faster than he's ever run before, around and around the world, gathering up the speed from every speed force outbreak. At one point, he seems to have some speedster companions who want to talk with him, but they are not identified. Meanwhile, in Las Vegas, Superman continues to fight the Black Racer, who seems to be gaining the upper hand just as Bart arrives, prepared at last for the final showdown and his reckoning with the speed force.

    Bart races Superman away from the Black Racer and explains he knows how to end the fight. As Bart then races back into the city, Superman tries to catch him. Superman shouts for Bart to slow down but Bart, tears streaming down his eyes, says "Not this time, amigo!" The Black Racer sees Bart heading his way and is ready for the battle. But Bart stops suddenly, giving all of his speed to the Racer, which causes an explosion that effectively obliterates both the Racer and Bart. Flashback to Smallville, two months ago... Chloe has just shot the mysterious pilot she and Oliver had been tracking and is knocked clear upon physical contact. Then we see the full conversation between the pilot (Chloe-2) and a Monitor before the Monitor kills her (which we saw in Chapter 11). Chloe-2 is "roiling with bleed" from having been touched by her Earth-1 counterpart, and while the Monitor is impressed at the lengths to which Chloe-2 travelled to warn Earth-1, he's not about to spare her life. "The Monitors maintain order. Existence is chaos. And so all existence shall be brought to an end." Back in the here and now, Chloe rouses from the memory as news of Impulse's sacrifice comes in from Superman. How, she asks Oliver, are they going to raise a child considering the lives they lead? Oliver says he doesn't know. Later, at the JSA brownstone, Jay Garrick and Superman talk about Bart, about Hawkman, and about how everything ends. Then Emil shows up and reveals that the excess Speed Force that Bart exposed Clark to "might have done more than just save the world..."

    Lois Lane isn't expecting the knock on her door while talking on the phone to Superman, who says he doesn't think he'll be doing the flybys anymore. That's Clark Kent at the door. They embrace and Clark explains about Bart's super-speed eliminating the radiation. Lois offers thanks to Bart but tells Clark to change back into the Superman costume as they have work to do. At Lexcorp, Lex Luthor finds the lights aren't working. He calls out to Otis but is greeted instead by the red glowing eyes of Superman. Green Arrow is there, too, and remarks that Lex used to buy nicer scotch. The two heroes have come for Tess, whom they now know to be alive and well. But it's Lois who does the dirty work of rendering Lex unconscious. When he wakes, Lex demands to know where his sister is. He finds a note, which features Superman's S-shield and the words "thanks for the memories." Meanwhile, Emil Hamilton has developed the means to upload Tess into a hologram projector. She proves grateful to be free of Lex at last. Clark then notices that Chloe isn't around, and finds her on the balcony. They talk about the Crisis and Chloe tells Clark about the pregnancy and how she and Oliver have to leave Metropolis at least until the baby is born. Clark understands, as usual, and everyone but Lex is happy.

Skeets is happy to meet "Mr. Superman" and Booster admits he knows about Clark's "hiatus" but is eager to discuss the Legion ring.

    Booster Gold tosses Skeets like a football into the air above the group of EarthGov agents surrounding Superman, Lightning Lad and Brainiac 5 - Skeets gives off some kind of electric pulse and down go the agents, allowing the heroes to go free. Brainiac recommends a disguise for Superman - different hairstyle, glasses and a red jacket. They discuss the Legion Ring protocol message, and Brainiac tells them that the protocol doesn't exist. Brainiac then wants to know who Booster is, but Superman interjects and forces the conversation over to the matters of his accidental time traveling and this so-called New Krypton. Turns out the Kandorians have returned - in the form of their descendants, who have flourished on the planet Clark sent them to, Argo, for the past thousand years. Their struggle with Earth began when they were denied membership in the United Planets, but has since escalated thanks to certain other actions EarthGov has taken... Meanwhile, over on an EarthGov Holding Facility, Minister Kirt Niedrigh is demanding of the governing council that the prisoner be moved to a more secure location. Just then, Superman rips through the facility's wall. They use a red sunlight flashbang on him, but that only delays him momentarily. He's just there to free the prisoner, he says. He's just there for Supergirl.

    Lana Lang deflects a bunch of bullets shot at her by child soldiers. She stops the bullets and tells them that they don't have to live the way they are living and don't have to be soldiers. She then proceeds to take them to her Sanctuary as Lois Lane follows, trying to get her story. That night, Lana explains to Lois that with the powers she has and with what happened in Metropolis, she had to go somewhere where she could make a difference. She tries and tries to stop the bloodshed and sex trade, but she cannot stop it completely. Even with her contact, David, she doesn't always succeed. Lana explains that the reason she brings the kids to the Sanctuary is because she wants them to have a childhood, something she herself didn't fully have in Smallville. In Tinasha, a bunch of the warlords are meeting together to discuss destroying the Angel of the Plateau. After a brief fight and the murder of one of the warlords, one of them brings up an easier solution. In order to destroy a threat from the west, pit it up against another from the west.

Corben brings up that Lois had given him a Red Kryptonite powered heart, but it didn't work as well as the Green. Corben continues to explain that when he worked for Toyman's Marionette Ventures, he was excited about his gig. Although he never fought Supergirl, he was given a new Green Kryptonite heart, which can absorb Meteor Rock aka Kryptonite. With her suit in danger of being absorbed, Lana lunges at Corben to defend Lois and the children, but then put in a choke-hold by him as he starts to absorb her Kryptonite laced nanites.

    Clark and Kara, reunited in the 31st Century, embrace in space as they get caught up on developments since she disappeared from the 21st Century on Jor-El's orders mere days before the arrival of Darkseid and Clark's transformation into Superman. She tells of how she was welcomed into the Legion upon her arrival in the current time and of how the discovery of Argo gave her hope she might finally have found somewhere to fit in. But then EarthGov sabotaged the Legion's diplomatic mission to Argo, precipitating war. Kara reveals that she wasn't a prisoner of EarthGov, after all, but a spy. And then she flies off. On the EarthGov holding facility, Minister Niedrigh and the council debate their response to Superman's infiltration and abduction of Supergirl. The council is eager not to initiate a conflict with the Legion, which they fear would bring unwanted attention from the United Planets. More aliens telling them how to deal with other aliens, they fret, xenophobically. They tell the Minister to focus on intelligence gathering for the planned assault on New Krypton, and he assures them his agents are already in place. Meanwhile, on the Worldship New Krypton, Cosmic Boy and Saturn Girl are tracking the EarthGov agents, who appear to be trained to withstand Saturn Girl's telepathy. But they can't make themselves invisible and Cosmic Boy and Saturn Girl soon find them in the midst of planting a bomb. The agents are apprehended and the bomb is disarmed just as the New Krypton cops, led by Eradicator Beh-Osk, arrive and arrest them all. The Legionnaires declare their innocence and try to assure Beh-Osk that they are there only to ensure peace, but Beh-Osk is not convinced and orders them brought "to the rings." Just then, Superman and Supergirl arrive, attesting to the truth of Cosmic Boy's defense. "The last son of Ancient Krypton!" shouts Beh-Osk. "Kneel before Argo's salvation!" And, much to Clark's surprise, kneel they do.

    Booster Gold wants his flight ring repaired. He reckons he isn't quite the same without it, less worthy. And Brainiac is only too happy to mock him for it - for having stolen the ring to begin with and for being less than heroic without it. On New Krypton, Superman - the "Liberator" - is getting a history lesson from Chancellor Pa-Vel, where he learns that these Argo-Kryptonians do not worship Rao the way that the Kryptonians that appeared on Earth had. They worship a god that Superman himself once knew. Meanwhile, a discussion between Saturn Girl and Brainiac on peacekeeping status leads to the suggestion that they might eventually need to activate Legion Protocol Six, recalling Legionnaires from all corners of space and time - the same Protocol that brought Booster and Clark to the 31st Century. Cosmic Boy reveals to Supergirl that he and Saturn Girl have become amorous, but Rokk is more interested in what Supergirl has to say about her time infiltrating EarthGov. Just then, Superman appears and says he knows what's going on. New Krypton is searching for a burial site. The tomb of Faora.

    Booster Gold and Skeets both lament their circumstances. On the street, agents of EarthGov are pursuing an alien, a young girl crying out in "Dumakan" for somebody to save her. Booster intervenes and the EarthGov agents are undeterred by the girl's age. Meanwhile, Clark and Kara are flying over the Amazon, talking about the situation. Clark thinks New Krypton has a right to Faora's remains and Kara decides she's no longer going to be a soldier. As they begin to approach their destination, Kara is hit with some kind of energy blast. EarthGov aircraft have arrived and demand that the two of them stand down. Superman says no, and the fight begins. Just then, it ends as Supergirl vision-blasts one of the two aircraft out of the sky and she and Superman have to save the pilots from certain death. The pilots, completely ungrateful and unimpressed, immediately begin shooting at the two heroes but Superman puts a final end to the kerfuffle with his "Arctic" breath. Next stop: Zod's Kryptonian fortress, deep in the Amazon, where Faora's body lies at rest entombed in crystal at the bottom of pit located in the center of Zod's throne room. Then Kara finds a cartridge from a "DNA extraction device." What, they wonder, could EarthGov want with DNA from Faora's unborn child? At EarthGov, scientists reporting to Minister Niedrigh exclaim that they have "successfully integrated the child's genetic material into Subject Zero." Niedrigh is exultant, convinced they've made history and that "the xenos will be undone by a weapon of their own design." It's Doomsday.

    Catching their breath from the last cliffhanger, Lois Lane and Lana Lang are relieved when they see US Air Force helicopters headed towards John Corben aka Metallo. However, instead of them taking out Corben, he uses his new-found nanites powers to add the helicopter blades to his body, making him even more of a threat. Chasing after Lois and Lana, Corben taunts the two with threats that after Africa, he will take Superman head-on. Some soldiers come to the rescue allowing Lois and Lana the chance to slip away, only to have their own guns added to Metallo's arsenal. Corben shoots at the two as Lois, wearing her bullet-proof vest, jumps in front of Lana, taking a bullet or two for her. Hot-wiring a truck, Lana runs over Metallo as a distraction for Lois to get a bazooka ready to fire. But instead of firing the weapon, Lois allows Metallo to take it only for her to shoot the warhead causing an explosion right in Corben's face, knocking him out.

Finally, Clark and Kara say their goodbyes in space.

    It's twenty years ago and a young boy has washed ashore on some tropical island. Face down in the surf, he is greeted by a sharp rap to the head from a spear wielded by a young girl who tells him that males are not allowed on the island. The boy introduces himself as Steve Trevor. The girl is alerted to the sounds of galloping horses and urgent voices. "My name is Diana of Themyscira," she then says, taking his hand and running into the water, "and you, Steve Trevor, will be my secret boy!" Fast forward to today. A dog, looking through a window, barks at the limousine that has just pulled up. Senator Martha Kent, gets in the car, where she meets Director Bones of the D.E.O., who commends her on getting the Vigilante Registration Act overturned and on her clear connections with the "supers and capes" community and offers her a job on his team when her term in government is up. She makes no promises. Just then, the car screeches to a halt because a hooded figured has appeared in its path. Gun-toting companions, at the figure's command to "Converge," emerge from the shadows and open fire on the car. Bones shouts at Martha to get herself to safety and that his team can handle this, but before Martha can even move a woman in white arrives on the scene, fells the hooded figure with a manhole cover hurled like a Frisbee, blocks the bullets from one of the figure's companions with her bracelets, and otherwise ensures Martha's safety. Bones escapes, which prompts the hooded figure and his companions to leave, via mass teleportation. Soon after, Martha calls Clark in Metropolis, who levitates with Lois curled into him while he sleeps. Martha is clearly shaken, but she is not hurt. No, she is more surprised at having been saved by someone she does not recognize.

Just then, a certain Kent arrives at the entrance to D.E.O. headquarters. Bones thinks it's Martha, and when he's told it isn't, he says to send Agent 47.

    When she first arrived in the "new world" ten years past, Diana's first glimpse of Lady Liberty standing tall in New York Harbor was a hopeful inspiration. Today, Director Bones doesn't like having to torture her, somewhere there in DEO Headquarters, but the deal he and Felix Faust made with Hades back in the day is not so easily broken. Plus he's got a national security interest in understanding what makes Diana "tick" - a preemptive strike against Themyscira appears not to be out of the question. Meanwhile, Clark is on-site and speaking just loudly enough for Diana to super-hear him - he's in search of Diana's mother, a task really not at all complicated by Special Agent Cameron Chase, who replaces Steve Trevor as Clark's guide on this tour, first aborted when the harpies attacked Lois and Diana in Washington; this leg of the tour features a monkish pair of "celestial specialists" who take shifts casting a continuous spell to protect the facility from "magick." Clark soon excuses himself to the toilet and then infiltrates the "Black Room" he had super-spied, where he finds Diana's mother alive but in suspended animation. Just then, an alert is sounded: DEO Headquarters has "incoming," something giant in the water. Enter a sea monster and Faust, wondering if he's interrupting anything...

Meanwhile, D.E.O.'s underwater headquarters are under attack from Faust, the sea monster and armed SCUBA divers. Bones recognizes that Faust manipulated him and rushes off to face him while at least one celestial specialist takes a bullet, further contributing to a weakening of the D.E.O.'s defensive magicks, allowing Diana to break free of her restraints. Bones and Clark confront Faust, who is able to both keep Clark at bay and kill Bones before taking the jewel from the trapped Hippolyta's tiara and summoning Hades, who promptly remarks on the beauty of the stars. Diana then punches Faust in the jaw and Clark tries to slow him with heat vision but Faust escapes in a swirl of mystic energy. As the sea monster closes in for the kill, Clark asks Diana to decide quickly whether she's going to help him as Superman flies (and/or swims) up, up and (using his heat vision again) through the sea monster on his way "topside" to confront Hades.

Meanwhile, Lois, her father and Steve Trevor, all together in a Humvee, discover that telecommunications are not functioning just as they smash into the first of the zombies. Lois whispers to Clark for a sign that he can hear her, which is promptly delivered in the form of a hovering Superman's "Arctic breath" stopping the zombie horde in its tracks. A military chopper descends on Hades, raining bullets, and Faust transforms nearby military personnel into harpies, which then take down the chopper. Superman appears, unfamiliar to Hades, who raises a cyclone, alarming Clark. Next thing everybody thinks they know, the cyclone has turned into a gigantic, zombified arm. Back at DEO headquarters, Hippolyta has tired of her post-escape medical attendees and tries to convince Diana that they should both return home, that the affairs of this land are not their concern. But Diana knows that Hades will eventually take his war to Themyscira and tells her mother, whose armor she has now donned, that she will do as her mother once did: fight.
