Synopsis for "Contagion, Part Ten: Contagion"

Catwoman is shocked when Batman tells her that it is impossible to develop a cure from Leanore's blood because she was never infected by the virus therefore her blood didn't have the necessary antibodies to create a cure. She just was naturally immune to it as well as the other two survivors. Batman, Catwoman and Nightwing feared that there was no hope left for Gotham City.

Meanwhile, Alfred watches as Tim's state worsens. Jean-Paul Valley watched on the news that the shape of the virus has been discovered and he remembered seing that shape in one of the laboratories of the Order of St. Dumas in Africa.

At that moment in one of the Order's headquarters, Brother Rollo was inquiring Brother Zoo about the events related to the virus. Zoo confessed he had spread the virus in Greenland to test it and when it proved successful, he infected another Order's member, Daniel Maris to take the plague to Gotham City. He also confessed that he was the one who ordered the attack on Kendall Stuart. Brother Rollo asked him if he took the writings from the African laboratory but Zoo didn't know anything about that. When Rollo finished his investigation he ordered the acolytes to kill Zoo and they let their hounds have Zoo.

With the writings that Azrael took from Africa, Sister Lilhy started to translate the text and then she gave it to Jean-Paul. The translated text was the recipe for the cure to the virus and Jean-Paul as Azrael set out to deliver the cure to Gotham. When he was near his car, he was attacked by some of the Order of St. Dumas' acolytes and with them was LeHah, but he ran away at the sight of Azrael. Azrael took down the acolytes and raced to Gotham. He eluded the National Guard to get to the city and delivered the cure to the nearest hospital.

Nightwing took the cure's recipe to the batcave to cure Tim but when he arrived Alfred tells him that it is already too late.



  • Batman states that Gotham's population is seven and a half million.
