Magpie sees Batman's utility belt and describing it as "shiny," asks if she can have it. When Batman refuses, Magpie attacks him with her razor-sharp talons. Batman manages to get a handcuff on one wrist but she knocks him back and escapes into the night. When Batman realizes that he's lost her, he goes to Braxton, who says that he has no idea who he is...Read the full recap
