Vixen doesn’t know Huntress well enough to know she doesn’t answer to anyone and once her mind is made up, there’s no talking her out of something. She believes with Brusaw gone, so is his hold over the children and the others. She can live with that.
Huntress tires to stop Vixen from hurting herself and is attacked again. She urgently appeals to Mari’s vanity and insist she channel the most stubborn and least cooperative animal in order to break the hold surrounding her. Vixen is eventually able to release herself from the the negative control of Brusaw and become an ally to Huntress.
Vixen pretends to kill Huntress at Brusaw’s command in order to get some time alone with her and ask questions. She can barely remember who she is. Huntress attempts to explain she’s one of the most disgustingly successful models of the past decade. As Vixen, she was JLA member. Somethings slowly come back to her, like she can channel animals abilities and their senses and wisdom. She’s having difficulty shaking the residual effects of being enthralled by Brusaw and hears voices telling her to cut out the sinful animal voices inside her.
Huntress realizes Vixen’s lost her capactiy to reason, and it’s not in her best interest to continue their physical altercation. She shoots her in the leg. Brusaw appears and orders calm. Vixen shoots off at the mouth that the woman standing before them is Huntress, not a reporter, and she’s there to do them harm.
Huntress finds herself fighting Mari Jiwe McCabe aka Vixen, who’s suppose to be her backup at the cult camp but is currently in the thrall of cult leader Sovereign Brusaw. Helena tries to fight and reason with Vixen but she’s gone feral.
Helena’s looking around when she gets into another scuffle with the security cult members. Oracle tells her not worry, she’s got backup who’s also undercover. Unfortunately for Helena, Vixen has fallen under Brusaw’s spell.
