Once again, Bruce finds himself at odds with the Red Hood gang, in a blimp meant for the Falcone family and the Penguin, only Penguin is tied up, and Bruce has miraculously disguised himself as Ozzy. As one would expect, things go bad, and Bruce is eventually discovered, all while learning that the Red Hood gang now has access to some Wayne Tech weaponry, which is not a good thing. Despite Bruce's constant interference, the Red Hood leader (who exhibits some recognizable qualities) admits he's taken a liking to Bruce, and offers a position in his organization to him... Bruce declines the Red Hood position, but helps himself to some of the leader's blood and gets himself (and the real Penguin) to safety.
Later that night, Bruce speaks to Alfred about his personal "war," mentioning everything from not being able to get a hit on the Red Hood's DNA, to the gang's use of Wayne Tech weaponry. Bruce can tell that Alfred wants to say something, and eventually gets it out of him. Alfred takes issue with the cowardice Bruce is exhibiting in his "war." Alfred tells Bruce that his parents fought for Gotham out in the open, and did it with pride, meanwhile he's acting as a "ghost," refusing to come out of hiding, reclaim his parents' company, and waging a vigilante war against criminals, all of which Alfred ultimately believes the Waynes would be ashamed of. Bruce fires back at Alfred telling him who's the coward when he's risking his life while Alfred polishes silver at a abandoned "mausoleum." Alfred's response? A swift smack to Bruce's face, followed by him walking out, and going home. With many issues still at hand, Bruce calls his Uncle and asks to meet.
Philip tells Bruce to meet him at the Gotham museum at midnight. Bruce finds his uncle waiting and tries to discuss the Red Hood's acquisition of Wayne Tech weaponry, and suggests they shut the division down until they can find out who the inside man is. Philip can't do that and asks Bruce once again if he'll return to the company, saying they could discuss this all then, but Bruce still refuses, which causes Philip to play his hand...
The lights turn on, and there's a surprise welcome home party for Bruce, and the media has been invited. Bruce isn't too happy and immediately tries to leave through a different part of the museum. Edward Nygma eventually finds Bruce, and introduces himself as Philip's advisor, but mentions Philip hardly takes his advice anymore. The two enter a little battle of wits, metaphors and perhaps a few riddles, which ultimately leads Bruce to believe his uncle may be the inside man to the Red Hood hang.
Bruce heads back to his apartment via a taxi, trying to call Alfred, thinking he's stumbled on to something big. As Bruce heads upstairs, the taxi driver gets out of his cab, puts on a the Red Hood leader's helmet, and is soon surrounded by his men. Bruce enters his apartment to find many "presents" and "decorations," and meanwhile, the Red Hood grabs a trigger, and makes things go boom.
The back-up sees Bruce in Egypt learning how to be an escape artist of sorts. The ultimate lesson he learns is to not rely on the possible, and aim to achieve the impossible. Bruce had entered his life or death escape challenge with a set of tech tools to help, but relied too much on their given purposes, which yielded no results. It was only when Bruce was forced to use his intellect and improvise, altering all his tools and combining them, that he was able to use them to find a way out, not thought possible with the standard way of thinking.
