The hatchet is from a satanist cult. Jim admitted she right about him needing a strong woman. Gordon brings the physic reader into questioning and tells him he had someone apart of it. He’s protecting someone he loves. They have Jerome come into the room, where Gordon accuses him of killing his mother and says the physic reader is his real father. The reader admits he is his father. Jerome couldn’t believe it. It’s impossible. Jerome starts crying then an evil grind then said she was a cold hearted whore. Also, this is the birth of The Joker. He was cruel and seemed to laugh about the situation. Lee is distraught. She was thrilled and scared about the whole situation. Then end up kissing passionately. Then we see Barbara walk in on them without them noticing. But what did she expect? Like he wasn’t going to move on after her leaving. Victor visits Penguin on regards to Falcone. Penguin is not making any money, he brought someone to assist him and its Butch. But its not the butch from before he kinda brainwashed him and now is under Penguin’s control. Bruce is ready for his meeting, heres where he questioned Wayne Enterprises about their involvement at the Arkham project. You can tell the board members are a bit put off as if their hiding something. And Fish Mooney was to switch positions to meet the manager of this facility she’s been captive.
Barbara tries to tell the girls they can use their looks as power. Kat disagree with her actions and look at what it hasn’t brought her anything good. In the line-up they find the chunky burglar but they want him to go back to the other members of the gang so they can arrest them all. The manager tells Fish Mooney they’re going to take her eyes. But she will not let them and took her eye out with a spoon. and then faints. Bruce brings out the really good wine and join Alfred and his friend over stories through the Thunderstorm. They have a disagreement regarding the details of their passed stories. Reggie will be leaving tomorrow. The main burglar gets a surprise visit from another member wanting the Red Hood to impress his girlfriend. He didn’t and got himself shot. Gordon and Harvey head upstairs to find him shot, they have the lead to the next heist. Penguin and Butch toast to getting the alcohol for the club but then Penguin wants to toast to Fish and finds Butch agreeing to her demise. Alfred finds Reggie in Bruce’s office stealing.

He was about to shoot Gordon and got rundown by GCPD. He gets a call that Alfred has been stabbed. We find out that Reggie was hired by Wayne Enterprises. He mentions about taking the kid out now, but they’re not. The Red Hood was picked up by a teen at the crime scene, not sure what that’s going to lead into.
