Bruce and Gordon both arrive in Gotham on missions that are sure to put their paths on a collision course. Gordon joins the GCPD which is rife with corruption and he is taught a savage lesson when he tries to buck this new system. Bruce tries out his years of training in a simple street brawl that does not go as planned. Wounded and searching for inspiration, Bruce finds it as a bat flies through the window.
