With the Gotham Gazzette about to run the story on Jim Gordon, it's not long before most of the Bat-family is alerted to the news via various sources. While the news breaks, the less than reputable Mayor Hady retreats into his office, where an old friend waits for him in the shadows.
With most of the GCPD cleaning up the accident, Bruce visits Gordon in jail, and Gordon doesn't seem to be doing well, as he's emotionally drained and defeated form the incident. Gordon starts to question himself, maybe he's too old, maybe he was bound to make a mistake at some point, but Bruce tells them that they both know he doesn't truly believe that, and promises to get to the bottom of it after taking a blood sample.
Meanwhile, a series of other events unfolds... Hady's friend tends to a rose garden and talks about how the city used to be, before freaks, before Batman, before Gordon, and how now is their chance to take back the city... HMM, wonder who this is... Meanwhile, at the crime scene, officer Nancy Strode finds a man at the scene who should be... This man in a greet suit has equally glowing green eyes, and casts an interesting shadow... Maybe he's there to hand out vengeance... like an angry spirit of some sorts, but nevertheless, he does some mystic voodoo and Nancy forgets she ever saw him. And finally, at Arkham, Doctor Phosphorous is screaming about voices or something, but an inmate screaming at Arkham? What else is new... I'll tell you what's new, Blackfire, he's new, and he's back from obscurity to blast Phosphorus away, making sure all know his name.
Meanwhile at the MTA building, Bruce is going over as much footage as he can of the incident, running facial recognition on the man Jim shot at. Catwoman sneaks up behind him, but after some thrown batarangs, Bruce tells her he doesn't have time for her that night. After some failed flirting attempts, Selina eventually gets serious and asks what's going on, but Bruce gets a hit on the facial recognition and tries to leave immediately, with the results not being a good sign.
Selina chases Bruce outside, demanding he not run away without telling her who he's so afraid of... So Bruce spills it, the man he ID'd? That guy left Gotham five years ago after his boss was run out of town by Gordon and himself. So this guy comes back to Gotham less than 24 hours ago, and Bruce doesn't believe he was alone. Who is the poor sap's boss? None other than the Roman... Oh, and guess who's talking to Mayor Hady... None other than the Roman, Carmine Falcone, seemingly having planned Gordon's downfall as a way to get back to the top.
