Synopsis for "Dead Again (Part III) - Hit & Run, Run, Run!"
Black Canary agrees to enter a contest of Fortitude to prove that she is strong enough to lead Athena's Furies. Dinah has little interest in such an event, but she needs to buy Connor enough time to find Ollie. She agrees to face Athena's toughest warriors in combat. Mia meanwhile, waits impatiently by Athena's throne.
On the other side of the island, Connor and Ollie are surrounded by Amazon warriors. They fight through a horde of them, and make a break for the cliff's edge. They dive off the cliff into the sea where a boat is waiting for them. Once on board, Connor fires a flare that signals Dinah and Mia that he has found Ollie.
Black Canary and Speedy snap into action and fight their way out of Athena's arena. After they are gone, Athena reveals that she is actually Granny Goodness in disguise. DeSaad steps out of the shadows and the two watch as the heroes race away.
Dinah and Mia reunite with Ollie and Connor on the boat and take off from the island. Dinah and Ollie are overjoyed to see on another again. Ollie changes out of his torn rags into a brand new costume. Without warning, a shot rings out and a bullet strikes Connor through the heart.
