Synopsis for "Lost Boys"
Jim Gordon hunts down a man named Roy Blount he believes to be the Peter Pan Killer, a child murderer he chased in his early days. Still dealing with the return of his son, James, Jr., he remembers the day James Jr. was accused of murdering a girl named Bess Keller. Bess had been one of Barbara's friends, and she disappeared in the woods while they were on vacation. Barbara claims to have seen James, Jr. carrying Bess' keychain but this was never proven.

Batman appears to take care of the criminal, and confirms that James Jr. was also not responsible for the birds being released.
