Synopsis for "Raven Rising, Part III"
Deathstroke, Ravager and the Teen Titans are trapped within the dimensional confines of Raven's soul self. Jericho emerges and begins attacking them. He jumps from one body to the next in an effort to kill his father, Deathstroke. Suddenly, Raven expels the heroes and villains from her soul and everyone is dumped out into the middle of the forest. Brother Blood and his followers surround them. Blood summons a plague of Trigon-esque demons to begin attacking everyone who does not have true faith. Unfortunately, this also includes many of his own cultists.
Jericho tries to jump into Cyborg's electronic eye, but Vic traps him and downloads his essence onto a computer disk. For the time being, Jericho is no longer a threat.
The only way to stop him is to get Raven back up to full power. In order to do so, they must retrieve her chakra gem which Blood has eaten. Beast Boy transforms into a worm and goes into Blood’s mouth. He eventually grabs a hold of the gem and forces Blood to regurgitate him onto the ground.
With Raven's full strength returned, she spreads her soul self wide and engulfs Brother Blood and his followers. She transports them all into an infernal Hell dimension.
Deathstroke and Ravager take off and the Titans return to Titans Tower. Raven is back and she's one of the gang again (albeit bald).
Later, Deathstroke has a private conversation with Rose. He expresses his disappointment in her inability to kill Jericho. He goes on to say that she is nothing like him at all. To prove that she is certainly her father's daughter, Rose takes Deathstroke's sword and gouges her own eye out with it.
