Part 1

Fortunately GL shielded them from the Eye's blast.

The Emerald Empress and Persuader show up, she notes that a GL is a rare sight these days.

Green Arrow tries to take on Persuader with some explosive smoke arrows, but he's captured and she puts a thingy on his forehead.

The Persuader's axe feeds back into GL's ring and he's knocked out. Here comes Chuck bouncing into action - but he gets knocked into a wall and knocked out.

Kara asks what's Brainy's power - super strength, speed? No, he's got a 12th level intellect. She snarks that he can knock them out with his diploma. Brainy manages to knock Persuader's legs out from under him, but he gets slammed into the air and caught by Kara. He says that his force field would have protected him, but she says that maybe she just wanted to cop a feel.

Chuck bounces back into action and knocks Persuader down, but then gets zapped by the Empress.

Kara tries to rescue him by punching the Emerald Eye, but feedback forces her back into the arms of the Persuader.

The Empress gives Chuck a forehead thingy.

Brainy finds that jumping around doesn't work, and she catches him too. She tosses one to Persuader so he can zap Kara before she escapes.

Brainy already has some hardware on his head, which enables him to pull his mind control thingy off. He tries to jump the Empress, but she blasts him and sends the Eye after him.

GL's back in business now, blasting away at the Eye!

Unfortunately, he's injured and the Eye is more than a match for his ring. Persuader gives him a disc, and they all start to walk away. Apparently they forgot about Brainy, who rushes after Kara and pulls her disc off.

Just then, the Persuader zaps him with energy from his axe. He falls onto Kara and Green Arrow, who are left behind now that the Empress has GL (and Chuck too).

The four of them disappear, but Brainy finds one of the discs.

Back in the lab, Brainy finds that the disc uses psionics, which Kara said they also used back on Argo - you just had to think of it and anything that had it would beep. Too bad the Fatal Five are masking the carrier waves.

Kara wants to know why Brainy saved her first, he replies it was based on pure logic. Green Arrow calls him on it, and Brainy tells him that he's the one with the 12th level intellect.

Sending Kara out for drinks, Green Arrow tells Brainy that he's in love with Kara, which of course Brainy denies since as a Coluan, he's ruled by intellect and not emotion. Plus, they just met. But then he realizes that the sweaty forehead, shortness of breath, inability to concentrate - "I thought it was guilt! But I am in love, how did you know?" When Kara comes back, GA leaves to go upgrade his arrows with 31st century tech, leaving Kara and Brainy alone.

Meanwhile, back on the Fatal Five's ship...

Tharok asks how they failed to capture Brainy with the superior weapons and element of surprise.

Empress counters that GL is worth a dozen Brainiacs.

Mano and Validus are at Tharok's side. She tells Tharok that you have to improvise, and now they're better prepared to strike against the UP. After that, the universe!

Back in the LSH HQ, Brainy and Kara are looking at his flight ring. When he gives it to her, she asks if that means they're going steady, but he doesn't understand.

He wasn't able to trace Chuck's flight ring or any of the others. Kara pulls her JL earplug out, says it's a shame their transponders don't work, they could track GL with his. But wait, they could do it if (they both say this together) "a quantum tunneling RF transponder!" Brainy goes to wire something together.

Green Arrow is in the armory adding to his arrows, and Kara calls him up. They've tracked GL to a ship heading towards the UP homeworld, which the Fatal Five have tried to attack before - and as Green Arrow points out, now that they've got GL and the rest of the Legion, they might succeed this time.

They'll take Brainy's personal cruiser there, and then improvise.

When they get there, they've got company - the entire mind-controlled Legion plus GL!

Okay, I think there must have been more than just Legionnaires + GL in that scene where they come flying out of the ship. There are two guys I cannot for the life of me figure out.

The first one is in the foreground of the second posted pic of the LSHers: brown hair, red tunic with blue sleeves and pants and red boots, some kind of orange circular logo on the chest. He can't be Jo, Gim or Brin because they are seen in other shots and their costumes don't match.

Second guy is in this shot: black hair, red shirt, green pants, black wristbands, some kind of pale green circular logo on the chest. Can't be Jo because the face shape and hairstyle are completely different and the neck of the costume is too.

And neither of these fellas is seen again in the episode. I'm at a loss.

The first one you mention is Colossal Boy, drawn here for some reason without his headgear. You can see in some of the other CB pictures where that orange circle on his chest is really his eagle-ish symbol.

The second one is supposed to be Ultra Boy. Chalk it up to a costume malfunction.
