Jack’s Day (The Second Part) ; Sins of the Child: Part Five

10:03 PM: Jack fights off three thugs in the room where he found the TV and phone. He fights his way through the maze, only to confront Nash at the end of the maze. She tells him that despite having the opportunity to kill him right there, she’s decided to let him live so that the two of them can both work on becoming better heroes and villains and have a truly worthy fight someday later.

Nash explains that the reason she killed the five men was because they helped Ted Knight fight her father. As a reward, Ted showed these men her father’s secret lab. After that, one of the few things her father valued disappeared: a medal he had won in The Great War (WWI). The Mist told Nash that one of the first men he had ever fought as a criminal had taken the medal, so she assumed it had to be one of those five men, having searched Ted Knight’s house before she had blown it up (Starman #0).

Clarence with his Wife/ Matt tending his wounds.

Nash also explains how she hired Dr. Phosphorus to kill Ted because she didn’t like the idea of doing that killing herself. She also agrees to leave Ted alone when she returns, saying that both he and her father should be granted some peace. She then tells Jack that they are both very much alike deep down; and that his heroism like her villainy is just an act. She finishes by saying she will come for a final battle in one year and then fades away into mist and disappears.
