"This world is divided. They are a primitive species, unevolved and and war with one another, too separate to be one. Their free will must be ripped from them. Like the other worlds, given absolution in one glorious belief: to serve him."
Steppenwolf to DeSaad[src]

  • Barry and Victor take Bruce's Vision Gran Turismo out for a joyride. During their drive, they come across a burning building, which Barry makes quick work of and saves everyone inside, allowing firefighters to put the fire out. They return to the Batcave, where Bruce is none the wiser.[14]
  • Driving past a broken down car with a woman in labor, Diana gives them a ride, having Victor turn all of the traffic lights on the way to the hospital green. Arriving at the hospital, Diana assures the little girl that she will make a great sister, especially considering she stayed calm for her family. Getting back on the road, Diana thanks Victor, letting him know that it was all thanks to him.[15]
  • Thinking he's driving slow, Arthur offers to drive for Bruce, but Bruce declines. Suddenly coming upon a car racing away from police, they speed up, Arthur jumping out the side of the car and stopping the criminal with his trident, much to the amazement of Bruce.[16]
  • As Barry talks about the ice cream he's enjoying, Diana notices an old man with a flat tire. He explains that he has a spare tire but no jack. Allowing him to use Barry's phone to call his family, Diana lifts the car while Barry changes the tire, allowing him to be on his way right away.[17]
  • Arthur compliments Diana's car, hoping to take it for a ride himself. She declines, citing that she's heard how Atlanteans don't function well on land. They proceed to get into an argument over whether Amazons or Atlanteans are superior, before being interrupted by a robbery taking place. They agree that whoever can take out more robbers can drive, with Diana easily winning.[18]

This is the evening of the day Barry saves Iris, visits his father, then meets Batman and flies to Gotham. Gordon shines the bat signal after receiving the report ("I'll talk to [Batman] tonight."), which they see as they land, then they immediately head to the police station, followed by the harbor. This means the conflict at the harbor must have taken place the night of the 29th, possibly into the early hours of the 30th. The previous day Diana had headed to the Shrine of the Amazons to learn of the Apokoliptians, which was signaled the night before by Hippolyta. The message to Diana was urgent, so it must have been the same date as Steppenwolf's attack on the Penetralium, putting the attack on the 27th.
