Outside the Metropolis Library, Lois Lane saw Chemo as the opportunity at the Daily Planet internship. She threw a rock at the monster. Its mass splashed and dissolved everything it touched. Chemo chased after Lane and Olsen. Karen Beecher happened to be at the library reading up on advanced chemistry and saw everything. After Katana took the souls of the other Super Hero Girls, Diana Prince went to the Metropolis Library to learn about Katana's Soultaker sword. She found a copy of "Ancient Weaponry Myth & Magic" and found an entry on the Soultaker and its origins in 14th century Japan. She discovered an incantation that could free souls from the sword but it was written in eight kanji characters. Prince tried to call Yamashiro but she dialed the Metropolis Department of Water and Power instead. The very loud automated message played. The librarian at the information desk pointed at the no cellphone sign. She apologized. Yamashiro happened to be in the library enriching her mind and sneaked over. She tapped Prince's shoulder to get her attention then hung up her phone for her.

Prince was again happy to find another reason they were so alike then asked for her help to translate the passage. Yamashiro saw the pages and realized Prince was Wonder Woman. Prince realized she was Katana. Yamashiro attacked with a jump kick. Prince threw a lamp. Yamashiro pounced. Prince leaned back in her chair and used her legs to propel Yamashiro into the information desk. The librarian pointed to the no loud fighting sign. Yamashiro apologized. Prince asked about the sign but got shushed. She spoke quietly. The librarian explained since it was Metropolis, that was the best they could hope for. They laughed and retreated to the bookshelves where fought quietly. Yamashiro claimed she and the others were interfering with her mission. She tossed books off a cart and kicked them. Prince caught them and opened "The Art of Distraction" to block Yamashiro's punch then shut it. The dust went on Yamashiro. Prince pressed her hands on Yamashiro's mouth and nose just in time to muffle her sneeze. Yamashiro swiped repeatedly at Prince, causing her to lean on a shelf.

A bust on top rocked. They gasped and climbed to it. They stabilized it in time and sighed but the shelf fell over and hit another shelf then another and so on. The librarian growled as she stamped something. She kicked them out. They apologized profusely. Yamashiro changed into Katana and claimed a hero's mission was to punish villains. Prince turned into Wonder Woman and claimed heroes protected the innocent then demanded the Soultaker. They fought sword to sword. Katana jumped atop one of the library's lion statues then kicked Wonder Woman down a level. She knocked the Soultaker away and jumped for it. Katana grabbed her legs and slammed her into the ground. Katana revealed she would spare her soul because she had a good heart and suggested she give up since she couldn't win. Wonder Woman still stood up and declared she would not allow her friends to remain trapped inside the sword. Katana leap at her. Wonder Woman blocked with her sword. They continued fighting down the stairs.

Katana revealed freeing her friends' souls would mean she would have to free every soul in the sword then knocked Wonder Woman's sword away. She then called Wonder Woman's methods weak and allowed villains to return again and again. Katana noticed a man trying to break into a parked car nearby. Katana used him as an example of why her method worked. One strike from Soultaker and he would never steal another again. Wonder Woman told her to stop. Katana asked if she was begging for a criminal's soul. Wonder Woman claimed she was begging for Katana's because she would become no better than the villains she punished if she continued on as judge, jury, and executioner. Katana looked at Soultaker then unleashed a strike. Wonder Woman ran in front of the man and took the attack instead. Katana watched in horror as Wonder Woman's soul was taken. The man apologized and explained he locked his keys in his car. Katana realized the grave mistake she made.

The girls concluded a study session at the Metropolis Library. During cleanup, Gordon realized they had Prince's bag. They got into Cruz's van and went to drop it off. Cruz eventually realized she didn't know where Prince lived. The others had no idea either even though it had been months since they met her. Gordon used her phone to pinpoint Prince at Centennial Park and admitted she put trackers on everyone. She was met with glares. Danvers asked her to not be creepy for once. Carol Ferris later found Jessica Cruz in the Metropolis Library and begged her for help. Whispering, Cruz asked for clarification that she wanted her to help deal with Hal Jordan and his obsession with getting her to take him back. She caved and agreed to talk to him. She squealed and hugged her, and called her a real pal. Cruz face slammed the desk and groaned.
