Synopsis for "Half A Life, Part Five"

Two Face shows the still orange-suited Renée Montoya around his hidout where he's prepared steaks and tiramisu from where Daria works. He wants to take care of her as he believes they now have a relationship.[1] He flips out when he sees a guard check out Montoya. Montoya asks him why he's ruined her life and he replies it was the flip of the coin.

At headquarters, Crispus Allen tells Officer Lowe, who stands with his face hidden in the shadows, that Matt Conway was interrogated for six hours and they didn't get any information out of him other than Two-Face had his kid and coerced him to do such. Allen goes on about how Conway met Two-Face once at a hotel, but he was blind-folded. Allen says the GCPD is going to start canvassing the hotels. When Lowe doesn't turn on the light and disappears, Allen walks towards the window to see Batman flying away.

Two Face admits to hiring Lipari to hire a P.I. to look into Montoya. He had a hunch he'd find something in her past. He tells Montoya he murdered both Lipari and Selker. He tells her he loves her and wants to repay her for the kindness she showed him by visiting him when he was in Arkham. She says he's crazy and doesn't want anything to do with him. He flips a coin and decides to kill Daria. Batman suddenly jumps in. He saves Montoya and handcuffs Two-Face. Montoya is infuriated and she knows he'll just get out soon to terrorize more people. Batman continues that he didn't want murder as an option for anyone.

Esperanza and Captain Maggie Sawyer call Montoya into the office. They say with the confession from Conway and the evidence of Two-Face at the scene, the D.A. is dropping all charges.

Montoya visits her parents house where Daria waits outside as she prepares to tell them it's true she's a lesbian. She spends several hours arguing with her religious parents who tell Montoya they never want to see her again. Montoya cries in Daria's arms.
