Six years ago, Kate Kane is still a cadet at West Point when she gets an unexpected phone call form her father, informing her that her Uncle Philip has died. Yes, that's Bruce's Uncle Philip too, so once and for all, that family connection has been made.
Kate isn't a fan of Gotham, as she associates it with death, and being that she's back for a funeral, her feelings about it still stand. While the funeral ends, Alfred spots Kate, the two speak a bit before Alfred leaves for the reception at Wayne Manor, hoping to see Kate there as well.
At the reception, Kate steps out to get some fresh air, and is later found in the grave yard by Bruce. The two speak a bit about their family and death, until a young, and fairly immature Bette interrupts them. The two go inside where Bruce gives a final toast to his uncle, and tells everyone they should get back to their homes to prepare for the oncoming storm.
At Kate's house, she speaks with her father about potentially doing her duty and helping those in the city, but he reminders her that she's home as a civilian, but that doesn't stop Kate, who sneaks out, jacks one of Bruce's motorcycles, and goes into the city.
It doesn't take long for Kate to find some trouble brewing, as she spots a jewelry store robbery with the help of a young kid (whose parents own the store being robbed, but have had their flight home delayed) making a "help" sign out of tape on a window.
Kate sneaks her way up to the kid, trying to get him away quietly, but is eventually noticed by the robbers. One of them rushes her with a gun, but she disarms him, takes the bag of jewels, and jump out a window into a pool below, where a bullet fired at her grazes her arm.
Kate plays dead in the pool, and surprises the robbers when they drag her out and after beating on them a bit, the police arrive, one of which is Maggie Sawyer, in from Metropolis to provide aid to the GCPD.
Kate's father later picks her up from the hospital, after getting her gunshot wound tended to. Kate tries to say she's sorry, but her father doesn't feel like it's the right place to have the discussion. After sharing a passing glance with Maggie on her way out, Kate soon falls asleep in her father's car, leaving him to only say: "Good soldier."
