The episode begins with Batman flying over the ocean when he detects a disturbance along the ocean shelf. He rides in the bat boat and swims to Atlantis just in time to save Aquaman from an assassination attempt. Aquaman reveals that he and his brother Orm are talking again. While Batman is extremely doubtful that Orm has reformed Aquaman insists that he has changed.

When Aquaman’s telepath fails to calm the creatures down they are forced to attack. The duo comes out on top but the two find mind control devices on the creatures. Batman immediately points out that it is Orms technology but Aquaman insist that it is the work of his arch nemesis, Black Manta.

Aquaman is forced to tell Batman that he has to leave and Batman is escorted back to the surface by two sharks.
