Synopsis for "2 Face Part One - Double Cross"

Robin, Alfred, and Jean-Paul Valley stand over the broken, comatose form of Batman after administering the supposed miracle drug Decadron. With nothing left to do but wait and hope their friend recovers, Robin regrets that he didn't stop Batman from pushing himself too hard much sooner, like three weeks earlier when they faced Two-Face.
Three weeks earlier, Two-Face, having escaped Arkham Asylum, returns to the old Gotham Municipal Courthouse. There, he reflects on his perceived betrayal by Batman, and uses his coin to decide that he should kill his former ally. However, he decides that he needs a group of enforcers to back him up in that plan.
Two-Face gets a gun, a folder, and a hand-grenade out of a safety deposit box, and then uses the file's contents to blackmail a small-time crime boss named Legs Lyman into meeting with him. At the meeting, Two-Face reveals that he plans to blackmail Lyman into giving up his assets and enforcers to him. Lyman refuses, and a flip of his coin persuades Two-Face to shoot Lyman dead. Then, he pulls the pin from a grenade as an added incentive for Lyman's enforcers to join him. He has them send Lyman's body to the Natural History Museum in two hours.
Later, Commissioner Gordon arrives at the museum, where Two-Face's men have already dumped Lyman's body inside the rib-cage of a dinosaur skeleton. Batman arrives moments later, and wonders why Lyman's body would have been disposed of inside a brontosaurus skeleton. The guard corrects him, noting that because of an error in which the head of another dinosaur was mistaken for the head of an apatosaurus, the brontosaurus does not exist - leaving the apatosaurus the only dinosaur with two heads and two names. Batman immediately realizes that Two-Face is responsible.
Back at the Batcave, Robin tries to persuade Batman to rest and let the GCPD handle Two-Face, but Batman is dismissive of his own physical condition and leaves on his own. He shakes down a bartender and his patrons, demanding information on Two-Face's location. The bartender gives up a location, but the lead turns out to be a trap, and an explosion sends the Batmobile into Gotham River.
