Synopsis for "Dead Robin, Part I"

Marcus Driver, Josie MacDonald, and Captain Maggie Sawyer are investigating a murder scene where a man is dead in an alley dressed as Robin. They discuss whether they think it's the real Robin but they have no evidence. Josie has her gut feel that it's not really Robin.

On the roof, Renée Montoya and Crispus Allen find a Batarang on the roof, but find no other evidence to say whether it was suicide, accident, or a murder. They hand evidence to Boren to keep it from being lost by Jim Corrigan. Montoya says if they find out it is the real Robin then they might get a lead to the identity of Batman. Suddenly, Batman appears behind them and tells them the real Robin is out of the country and that the GCPD needs to stay out of his way.

At the station during a briefing, Captain asks Jackson Davies to perform a second canvas. Romy Chandler shows resentment still for Batman and wants to go after him.[1] Sawyer is adamant that Batman is not a subject yet despite the evidence of a Batarang being found on the roof. She instructs Montoya and Allen to head to Arkham Asylum to find out what the 'usual suspects' know.

Nora Fields works late at the morgue. She finds out that he has multiple fractures, he's fifteen, and the cause of death and fall are all in line with the death report and what they'd expect from the real Robin but they' can't confirm. They look at the child registry for his prints and find a hit, Roger Baumbach.

At Arkham, the detectives find all the inmates have bruises and some with black eyes. They figure Batman canvassed the crowd last night. All the inmates claim they don't know anything about the murder.

Romy and her new partner, Takahata, stop by the Iceberg Lounge to pay a visit to Penguin. Takahata mentions the Penguin has had recent business dealings in Bludhaven. When they walk into Penguin's office, they find Batman beating him. When Romy orders Batman to stop and he refuses, Romy shoots at Batman. The next thing she knows Batman is laying on the ground.
