Synopsis for "Claim Jumping, Part Two"

All around Gotham City, chaos is breaking out. Two-Face and his followers are marching uptown. James Gordon and his men are making a grab for Penguin's territory and Penguin is attacking Batman's territory. Batgirl is holding Batman's territory for the time being, but Batman is nowhere to be found.

Batman is being kept tied-up and drugged elsewhere by a Russian woman that goes by the name of Echo. Penguins appears at Batman's territory demanding Batgirl to surrender, but she refused and shot and arrow to Penguin's knee. Two-Face arrives and tells Penguin to leave as he has double-crossed Cobblepot. While Penguin was attacking Batman's place, Gordon has already seized Penguin's territory and Two-Face has done the same. Penguin leaves and Batgirl does the same, deciding Two-Face's men are too great in number for her to fight alone.

Batman recovers from the drug Echo placed on him and discovers that she can read people's mind and forced him to relive the fatal scene when Thomas and Martha Wayne were murdered by Joe Chill in Park Row in front of kid Bruce Wayne. Echo feels sorry for Batman and then, when she decided she has hold him long enough, she left Batman alone. Batman managed to untie himself and immediately he went to check over his territory. Upon arriving, Batman realized that his place was lost to Two-Face and his gang. They used extreme violence to make the message clear: Batman lost to Two-Face.
