Synopsis for "Contagion, Part Four: Flesh and Fire"
Azrael disrupts into the shack where Robin, Catwoman and Tracker were struggling for the virus's only survivor, Kendall Stuart. Catwoman, Tracker and Azrael start to fight each other and Robin tries to take Stuart to a safer place. Outside the shack, Robin is attacked by some men and he tells Stuart to run and find a place to hide. Knowing that the Gotham's only hope was in danger and that without him there would be no payment; Azrael, Catwoman and Tracker join forces to protect the man. They managed to take down some of the assasins but in the end Stuart freaked out and was shot by one of the killers.
Before he died, Stuart told them that there were two more survivors. Robin took a sample of blood from Stuart and head back to Gotham City. Azrael, Catwoman and Tracker decided to search the other survivors separately. Meanwhile in Gotham, Batman called upon Nightwing to help them out as the virus has claimed a lot more victims.
