While the Legion members are trailing their foes, the Dark Circle presents Ontiir with taped evidence from the late Rackiir, who indicates that Ontiir was really sent to infiltrate the Dark
Circle.  The Circle members give Ontiir a knife and order him to prove his loyalty by giving them his secrets, and then committing suicide.  Supergirl, Sun Boy, and Brainiac 5 crash in and begin
combat with the Circle members, which is complicated by the arrival of Chief Zendak and Science Police members.  When Ontiir draws a bead on the Circle's chief with a blaster, he himself is
shot dead by Chief Zendak.  The Dark Circle breaks off hostilities, declaring that they have nothing to fight over anymore.  Later, Supergirl tells Brainiac 5 that her trip to the 30th Century has been a mistake, and perhaps she does not fit into the Legion anymore.  Promising to see him sometime later, she returns to the 20th Century.
