Ballistic

Episode Synopsis

The episode opens with Carmine Falcone discussing Black Mask’s recent attacks. After demanding Mask’s head he talks with his youngest son, Alberto Falcone. When Alberto starts eluding to mythical connections Carmine summons Dr. Hugo Strange. Strange promises Falcone that we’ll hear no more talk of this “Court of Owls”

There is a montage with Son of None, Sleeper, and Vagabond all receiving letters from the Society of Assassins. A letter with one cryptic sentence: “Your interference in our work has been noted.” After reading his letter, Justin steps back out side and is boomtubed to Bell Reeve Prison to talk with Amanda Waller.

Jape meet with Dr. Freeze, after a reminder to secure field agents Freeze gives Jape his most wanted list:

Most Wanted
Joker
Bane
Hugo Strange
Scarecrow
Victor Zsasz
Dr. Fate
Professor Pyg
Dollmaker
Mad Hatter
Calendar Man

Son of None is abducted by Tormentor and the Circus de Gothik in an attempt to scare him away from Haly’s Circus.

The Autopsy of Bruce Wayne shows Vagabond very minor scratches on almost all of Wayne’s major arteries. The blood is too far gone for analysis, but it’s suspicious. Could be posion. There are also subtle puncture wounds, almost microscopic, that collapses one of Wayne’s lungs, pieced both kidneys, punctured his intestines in multiple locations, and narrowly missed his heart. None of these wounds line up with a fist fight. Their almost… surgical.

Delta is requested at Arkham Asylum. His last visit helped Adam immensely, but he’s since slipped back into madness. Strange want’s to hook Arthur up to some fancy machines and monitor his vitals while Delta visits. The tests show abnormal activity in Arthur’s brain-stem when Delta is near. Not when Arthur sees him, or speaks with him, but whenever Delta is simply near by.

Delta is then trapped in Arkham when it comes under attack by Falcone’s men. The vigilantes rush to stop the attack, only to discover it’s a feint. The real attack is happening at Blackgate where Carmine is springing Bane.

The gang war between the Falcones and Black Mask erupts across Gotham. There is reports of gunfire at Grant Park, riots on South Channel Island, a Sniper in the old Clocktower, the Stacked Deck being car-bombed, and the Penguin running for his life.

The vigilantes rush to stop the attacks. With Carmine unprotected and the Vigilantes distracted, Black Mask makes his way into Carmine’s home and shoots him in the head to end the episode.
