However, Constantine knows someone who can help them break in.

Nate and Zari go to a schoolyard park to find Young Zari, and Zari says that kids used to gang up on her. Young Zari is showing off the young dragon, that she's named Mithra, to the kids. A woman comes up and tells the kids to run, saying that it's a monster. She uses the Eyes app to report it, and two men arrive via courier, grab Mithra, and leave.

Gideon tells Sara that it's located Neron. Neron is testifying before Congress about the "crisis" as Tabitha watches from the audience.

Mona and Gary bring food to the creatures. They then meet with the other Legends and warn that the creatures are turning monstrous, and Charlie says that they are monsters. Sara wonders how they'll deal with the fear, and Zari has Gideon play video of Mithra dancing for the kids. The video has gone viral, and Zari says that even for a day the dragon changed her world. Nate realizes that it sounds like Hank's pitch for Heyworld, and says that the world needs a place for people to see creatures the way that Charlie helped them see Charlie: misfits trying to fit in. Nate warns that it'll take months to build the park.

Astra drags Constantine into the bank and tells the clerk that it's Constantine. She says that Constantine owns the marker on Constantine's soul and wants him in his vault, and the clerk quickly gives in and takes them to the vault.

As Nate and Zari work, Gideon reports that in one potential future, building Heyworld changes her future because the antimetahuman act never passes. Nate figures that it's great news, and Zari says that Behran would survive but she'd never get the totem and the last two years would never happen. Sara comes in and says that she'll be her because she'll be on Waverider on the temporal zone and immune to the timeline change. Zari seizes on the idea and figures that she can hack the Eyes app and transmit the images from Heyworld worldwide.

Nora finds Ray's coin and Constantine demands that Astra free Ray's soil. She takes the token and uses it to teleport Constantine and Nora to a prison. Constantine warns that what they do to souls isn't pretty. When they break in, they find Ray playing Giant Jenga with his captor, Vandal Savage

Mona tries to determine what the creatures can contribute to the Heyworld Review. Mike the Spike says that they shouldn't help, and Charlie comes in and says that it's their chance to show people that they're more than monsters. Mona turns into Wolfie and agrees, and Charlie says that there's more to all of them than meets the eye. The Ogre, Frederic, wonders what the point is and humans run away from them. He just wants to sing, and the minotaur agrees to perform with him in a duet. Charlie figures that they have a show.

Ray kisses Nora, who slaps him and complains that he domed the planet. He says that he had to do it to save Nate, and Constantine tells him that he's a softie. Vandal says that they got talking when Ray arrived. Nora's wand glows as she realizes that she fulfilled Gary's wish, and they teleport back to the real world. They appear on Waverider and Gary hugs Constantine. Constantine explains that Ray has turned back into the soul token because he can't leave Hell any other way. Gary wishes for him to have his real body, but Nora's magic isn't powerful enough.

Nate and Sara tell Constantine their plan, and he suggests that there's another way to fight Neron. He explains that if Neron breaks the deal because Neron kills him, then all of the souls he holds would be released. Sara refuses to consider the idea and Constantine hesitantly agrees. Once he leaves, Sara tells Nate that she's not going to lose another Legend and he has a theme park to build.

White Canary and Steel go out and display their skills, and the ogre, minotaur, and puca come out. The Legends ask what they have, and suggest that they get to know them so they have nothing to fear. The Monitor watches from the shadows, and the audience starts booing as they realize it's not a superhero show.

Nora and Ray go to Nate's body and Mick yells at Constantine to bring Nate back to life. Constantine says that it takes magic beyond his means, and Nora weeps over Nate's body.

In the rafters, the ghostly forms of Nate and Hank watch. Hank assures Nate that he hasn't been far, and admits that it sucks to die before he's ready. However, he had faith in Nate and was right to believe that Nate and the Legends would see it through. Hank says that the only thing missing from the show was music and starts singing. Below, Mick sings briefly and Constantine realizes what's going on. The Legends and the monsters join in, and Tabitha's staff glows. Ray realizes that love is energy, and Constantine grabs the spell.
