The broadcast starts and all of the adults are incapacitated, including Pat, Barbara, and Justin.
Pat, under Brainwave's influence, attacks Courtney, but she's able to get through to him by reminding him she's her daughter.
Beth and Chuck then come up with a solution to disrupt the broadcast in the tunnels by activating the frequency blockers, thus freeing Pat and Justin.
The JSA and Justin then meet up looking for the machine.
They come up short and end up fighting the ISA, Dr. Ito, Cindy, and Grundy.

As things progress, the Gambler redirects Icicle to go after Beth.
Rick and Pat continue to fight Grundy, while Courtney and Yolanda go to find the machine.
The girls find it and destroy, thus freeing all of the adults from the massive brainwashing.
Icicle then reaches Beth and Barbara, destroying Dr. Mid-Nite's goggles and Chuck and then taking Barbara.
Icicle tries to get Barbara to see things from his point of view, and when she doesn't, he threatens to kill her.
Courtney then attacks Icicle, and Mike runs him over with the car.
Afterward, the JSA talk about moving forward, while Justin leaves Blue Valley to look for other Seven Soldiers of Victory.
