At Wayne Manor, a girl named Grace talks to Bruce, they went to school together when they were kids. The two share a moment and decide to leave the fundraiser together.
Jim stops at one of the rooms in the narrows and goes inside to talk to the people living there. He treats them well and asks them questions. Headhunter barges in and takes a wheelchair bound man out of the room, dragging him into the street. He threatens the shoot the man and the cops and Penguin's men end up in a stand-off. The woman says that a hearse came and took the police men that went missing. They've got a lead.

The cop with Jim says that Pyg was wearing his mask and that he was tortured for hours while the villain sang nursery rhymes. He asks Jim why Pyg is doing all this and Jim says it's because there is so much rot in the city. The cop is confessing to the things he did for Penguin and Jim tells him that they can make it right together. Once Pyg is gone, he's going to clean up the department. The man tells Jim that Pyg was planning something in the Narrows.

Penguin holds a press conference about his work with the police from the courthouse in the Narrows. Harvey says it's a good plan because it can keep cops safe. Jim gets a call from Pyg who tells him that he's creating a better Gotham City. Pyg says Jim will die if he goes in "there." Jim has to stay out of the courthouse, and he tells Jim that "he's one of the good ones."
