Synopsis for "The Eternal Return Part 4 of 12: The Revolution Will Be..."
Swift awakes from her coma and meets up with a tired Engineer. The Engineer tells Swift of what happened after her injuries in Philadelphia before the Carrier's monitors detects a news broadcast showing the Sons of Liberty and their followers in front of the White House's lawn, in which Paul Revere accepts to the Authority's demands to challenge them.
In the Garden of Ancestral Memory Jeroen Thornedike consults with his predecessor of his problems of having the Church of the Shaman as a failure to change the world for the better as many religions had tried and let down before, and about his enemies being capable of stopping the Earth from helping him. However, their moment is cut short as Jeroen is contacted by the Authority about the Sons of Liberty.
At the White House, the Authority has arrived with Jack Hawksmoor kicking Paul Revere from behind. As the Authority are surrounded by the Sons' followers, and not wanting to harm innocent civilians the Doctor teleports them to a world of excrement (much to the people's surprise). With Hawksmoor and Midnighter fighting Paul Revere and Maiden America respectively, Swift and Apollo defeats Dyno-Mite and Johnny Rocketman; Dynomite is burned by Apollo and plummets to the ground, and Rocketman is thrown into the Washington Memorial and is captured by the Engineer for analysis on the Carrier in the hopes of finding the Sons of Liberty's Carrier. On the ground, Midnighter has the advantage over Maiden America; the Doctor nullify Fallout's radiation; and both Hawksmoor and Paul Revere are on equal terms. As the Doctor prepares to inflict his magic on Fallout, a recovered Dyno-Mite explodes in front of the Doctor wounding and knocking him unconscious. With the Doctor out cold, the Sons' followers reappeared.
On the Sons' benefactor's Carrier, the benefactor and his follower Samson watches the events unfold in Washington. Samson comments to his master of the Sons of Liberty are losing. However, the benefactor reply that it is a part of his plan, and decides to "take back what [he] gave them."
On the Authority's Carrier, Jenny Quantum tells the Engineer, who is examining an unconscious Johnny Rocketman, of wanting herself to help in the fight in Washington. But the Engineer forbids her to fight and instead has her to go the Carrier's junction room and have the Carrier to teleport the Sons' followers. As Jenny walks to the junction room, she ask the Carrier as to why it is "acting different" and what her father, Midnighter, did to it. Suddenly she is contact by a apparent future self who ask Jenny that she can still "stop it all". At that moment the Enginner contacts Hawksmoor that Rocketman has suddenly revert back to his regular elderly age. Jack infer this as the rest of the Sons of Liberty are reverting back to their normal age, with Maiden America suddenly died from heart failure. Hawksmoor helps a feeble Paul Revere, asking who gave him and his team their youth back. Paul, realized and urgently tells Hawksmoor to get everyone away for safety from a unstable Fallout. Dyno-Mite, though elderly, prepare to explode Midnighter from behind. But Apollo warns his husband, and Midnight quickly dodges away and unfortunately letting the Human Hand-Grenade to explode in front of Fallout causing a nuclear explosion, destroying Washington D.C. The Authority are the only ones that survive due to Jenny Quantum who shields them from the devastation with her power but couldn't save any other.
