Jess finds herself in the courtroom of the Green Lantern Corps. Kilowog states that she is responsible for the damages caused at Metropolis, because of her refusal to attack the monster. However, Jess is comfortable as she has made a way to prove her innocence, using her book-long report. Just then, Hal comes in to help her out. He tells that when a fellow Green Lantern is in court, someone can be his or her Peer Advocate. However, he forged a signature with Jess's name on it. He is worried that she may lose her ring, but she thinks otherwise. She reluctantly agrees, to her dismay, and tells him to be quiet.
As the meeting begins, he opens up a circumstantial hearsay. He says that the damage wasn't a result of Jess's negligence, and that Kilowog didn't see the damages in the city. Kilowog then plays a video of a woman reacting to the mayhem that happened. She clearly said that it was a direct result of Jess's negligence. This adds to Jessica's guilt, which prompts her lawyer to stay quiet. Kilowog then calls a witness - Kara Zor-El. She states that she was with Jess when the incident happened. As she was about to punch it, Jess deflects it, and Supergirl then lands on a truck load of mackerel. Hal then claims that if no one could defeat the monster, Jess couldn't, so she wouldn't be responsible for the chaos.
Kilowog then calls in Hawkman as his next witness. He simply heard of what was happening, and punched it. It then flew away. Kilowog then makes a point where if Jess did attack, then the chaos would've been prevented in the first place. The judges are willing to adjourn the meeting until Jess proves her point. She has everything in her report, but because it is so long, they become bored of it. Hal says that no one reads them, then calls Garth who is a surprise witness, as a last ditch effort to save his friend's ring. However, Garth's testimony is scripted, because it was impromptu.
Hal tries his best to help Jess out, and believes that no one would read her report, which is ridiculously long, but instead, Jess fires him as her Peer Advocate. As he leaves the courtroom, he notices a page in her report. The judges have now made their verdict, which worries Jess because she realizes that they didn't read her report, thus coming to her senses that Hal was right. Hal then comes back as he has found evidence of Jess' innocence . He calls on Kongulon, the monster from the incident. She is shown doing sonic blasts as Jess reminds her about her collar, which was a universal translator she uses. It was shown that a juvenile prankster of her species planted a world-destroying bomb in Metropolis millions of years ago. She hastily leaves her collar to deactivate the bomb, as Green Lantern comes in for assistance as she uses her ring to translate her sonic blasts. However, Supergirl, and Hawkman were hindering their progress in getting the bomb out of Metropolis. Eventually, Kongulon gets it out. This proves that Jess isn't guilty at all. She then states that the judges must read their officers' reports, and rethink the policy of violence being the solution to every problem. They all agree, as they make a deal not to tell the Blue Lanterns about this. As Hal and Jess both head home to Earth, she thanks him for helping her and being her friend. He says that he never leaves his friends behind. However, at the courtroom, Garth is seen left behind while everyone else left.

- Irony: Despite Hal saying he wouldn't leave any of his friends behind, Garth is left at the court room.
- In the original storyboard, there would have been more Green Lanterns in the meeting, however it was cut possibly because it is hard to animate a lot of Green Lanterns, or it was due to time constraints.
- This episode continues the gag of Hal misspelling people's names. It also shows that he is poor at handwriting, and that he can't write an "S" correctly.
- This is the ninth episode of Season 2, after "Am Batgirl," "Double Danvers," "According to Garth," "Super Wonder Bat Bee Zee Lantern Mobile," "Sirens Conch," "Anger Management," and "Happy Birthday Zee" to be animated by Boulder Media. This is the 19th episode overall doing so.
