Synopsis for "Episode Eight"

The Joker is in a hotel room with a woman named Donna Gugina. After a night of love-making, the Joker brutally attacks her, crushing her larynx and strangling her to death. All the while, he professes his undying love for her.

At the Batcave, Dick asks Batman about the Joker. Batman tells him that the Joker is a psychotic serial killer. He tells Dick that he's going to need a costume and a mask if he wants to be a detective. Dick doesn't care for the idea, and thinks that wearing a costume is "queer". Batman chastises him and tells him that he needs a secret identity or else their enemies will be able to track them down and kill them.

Batman throws Jocko-Boy into the Batmobile and takes off. After dumping the stoned gangster into the river, he turns to see a bright green light shining in the sky. Batman knows that this is a signal from Green Lantern and goes to meet him. Green Lantern wants to talk, but Batman doesn't have time for him. He gives him an address and tells him to meet him later.

Elsewhere, the Joker arrives at the den of one of his colleagues, Selina Kyle - the Catwoman.

Back at the Batcave, Dick Grayson fashions himself a costume patterned after legendary hero Robin Hood. When Batman returns, Dick tells him that he wants to be known as the Hood. Batman tells him that wearing a hood is stupid and a liability in a fight. He pulls the hood off of him and tells him that he is just Robin.
