The story of this episode focused on the return of Etrigan! Knight of Shadows begins with a flashback to our favorite Demon’s origin. It seems as if back during the Camelot days, Jason Blood was a knight in King Arthur’s court. Seduced by Morganie Le Fay, Jason Blood betrays his master and allows Le Fay to invade Camelot. As punishment, the wizard Merlin binds Blood to the demon Etrigan. Fast-forwarding to the present, Morgaine Le Fay has returned and is searching for the Philosopher’s stone that Merlin hid from her years ago. She seeks to use the stone to bring back Camelot, so her son Mordred can climb to the throne. Blood senses danger and enlists the help of Batman. After their first tussle with Le Fay, Batman enlists the help of the Justice League. Etrigan reveals that Le Fay has an amulet that warns her of his presence. J’onn volunteers to use his telepathy to track down Le Fay, but he soon discovers that Le Fay’s powers dwarf his own. J’onn finds himself a victim of Le Fay’s illusions, and she has him believing that he is back on Mars with his family. Etrigan manages to pull him out. Meanwhile, both parties track the philosopher’s stone down to two people. Flash and Wonder Woman go to invest a millionaire playboy, who looks suspiciously like Hugh Hefner. Batman, J’onn and Etrigan go to the other source, but finds that he does not have the stone. Morgaine meets them there, and in the following battle, she controls J’onn and injures Batman in the course.
The episode continues with J’onn apologizing to Batman for his distracted in their previous battle with Morgaine. Meanwhile Flash and Wonder Woman discover that Harv Hickman has been using the philosopher’s stone to get the money and women. Just as Wonder Woman is about to bring back the stone, Morgaine arrives and nearly captures the stone. Etrigan arrives in just time and he manages to hold of Morgaine long enough for Wonder Woman to take the stone back to the Watchtower. While in the Watchtower, J’onn continues to be manipulating by Morgaine. Morgaine sends an army of ogres to attack the League, giving her time to convince J’onn to bring her the stone. Meanwhile, Etrigan had teleports the League to J’onn’s location for a final battle with Morgaine. On the final Battle, Morgaine manages to defeat the League, and J’onn manages to defeat Etrigan by telepathically affecting Etrigan’s mind and forcing him to revert to Jason Blood. My reading Etrigan’s mind, J’onn realizes that Morgaine is evil and that even if she resurrects his family, it’s not worth the price. J’onn crushes the philosopher’s stone and Morgaine leaves with the promise to return.
