His mom has also seen her around the ammunition plant. They race to the plant. When they check, they learn she has indeed been poking around. She’s been pretending to be a government inspector. A man is watching them he speaks in German, then English. On Reform Island, the baroness begs Wonder Woman to take her back as the German’s have planned to destory the ammuniton plant. She promises to remain Wonder Woman’s prisoner while saving the plant. Kirby’s mother is in danger at the plant. She’s tricked into going to the stcok room and knocked out and tied up.

She says they moved up the timeline and didn’t know. Steve tries to arrest her. Wonder Woman spots the little boy. Everyone tries to stop her from helping him. She gets a ladder from the fire department. There’s a firefighter on the other side of. She instructs him to spray her with the hose while she jumps to the building. The stream from the hose helps her reach the building and protects her from the fire. She catches the window and has to pull herself up. Kirby recognizes Wonder Woman and helps her inside. She quickly breaks the chain holding his mother. Paula insists on being freed to go save Wonder Woman. Steve refuses and she kicks him. She grabs a fire coat and hat and runs in. She’s looking for a bomb to disarm to save Wonder Woman. She gets to the bomb and something blinds her. She puts it into water and then passes out. Back at the top of the building, Wonder Woman uses her lasso to get the ladder and create a rope to cross. She puts Kirby and his mom on her shoulders and starts walking the rope. They arrive safely. Wonder Woman returns to Steve and asks where Paula is. He tells her she knocked him out and went it to stop a bomb and save her. Wonder Woman insists they go in and save her. He takes her in another building with an adjoining basement. She breaks through the wall easily. They find her quickly and exit. Wonder Woman actually runs her to a hospital herself. Paula has 3rd degree burns and smoke inhalation. Wonder Woman goes down to the lab to try and make an amazon ointment to help her. She makes it and returns to her room. The doctor tells her there is no hope and her time is short. She asks for a few minutes alone with her. Once the doctor leaves she takes off her bandages and applies the ointment she made. That afternoon, the doctor tells Wonder Woman she is recovering and out of the woods. Steve also finds Diana at the hospital. He’s thrilled. She tells him she changed clothes and followed Paula. Diana becomes her nurse. She keeps giving her the ointment which is helping heal her wounds. Paula tells her she knows that she is there as her jailor and she does not plan to run away but to stand trial for her crimes. Wonder Woman is shocked.

She is found not guilty. Wonder Woman gets her mothers’s permission to bring Paula to Aphrodite’s temple. Paula commits herself to the goddess.
