Batman makes an unlikely alliance with Silver Monkey to escape from the League of Assassins. Katana questions Alfred on why we left Batman and if what Ra's al Ghul said was true: did he kill her father? Alfred tells her that they were outnumbered and wouldn't be any good to him if they were dead; he also denies what Guam said, Katana hopes he is telling the truth, for his sake. Meanwhile, Katana, Alfred, Lieutenant Gordon, and Barbara take action by trying to hijack the cortex, as Ra's al Ghul's attempts to cleanse the city during the blackout has left it terrorized by the Ghosts and other criminals. Batman escapes but at the cost of Silver Monkey's life. Katana finds out the truth about her father, and tries to kill him but both are taken away and put in separate cells. Ra's al Ghul tries to get Batman to surrender, but he refuses. Before he escapes, Batman unlocks Blurr's backdoor, allowing Barbara to hack in. Meanwhile Ra's al Ghul frees all the criminals that Batman put away in hopes of defeating him.
