The fallout from last issue leaves Selina and her sister at odds over Catwoman. And when Selina's friend Holly shows up beaten and abused, the Catwoman heads out to make a decision that could change everything!
Detectives Flannery and Strunk, and many GCPD officers, are outside the theater as the coroner takes away Stan. Holly stands on top of a car watching the events then Strunk in a hostile manner pulls Holly off and threatens her. Flannery says Holly is not really involved. He also says he thinks Catwoman and Sister Magdalene are sisters.
On a nearby rooftop Batman and Maggie discuss Catwoman. Batman says he's seen her before and says her recklessness makes her dangerous. Maggie doesn’t want to give Batman any information. Batman says that she's in shock. She asks why he's stalling, and Batman says he's compiling facts. She hugs him and begins to cry silently. Batman then takes her to the GCPD in the street below. Maggie looks up and sees Catwoman on a building watching the events.
Inside the church Selina is seen wearing normal clothes and a veil holding a bag Maggie then sits next to her and asks what Selina is there for Selina tells Maggie that she wants her to get angry or yell at her Maggie obviously withdrawn is only making sick jokes not paying attention to her. Selina says it’s not Maggie talking it’s her, Stan and Catwoman then she tosses the bag. Maggie grabs it and pulls out the Catwoman costume she Selina says she has to get rid of it Maggie asks why and Selina says because when she puts on the costume she becomes something else the two are then interrupted by Holly who is in the shadows and asks Selina not to do anything stupid she comes out beaten and bloody Selina hugs her and asks Holly who attacked her and Holly responds Strunk.
In his office Selina tells Flannery that Strunk attacked Holly he doesn’t believe her saying he is a stand up individual and since Stan is dead Maggie is safe and Gordon is satisfied he is ready to put it all behind him.
Back at the church at night Selina is wearing her Catwoman costume and kisses Holly on the cheek he is trying to sleep. Maggie then comes in the room asking Selina not to leave but Catwoman refuses to listen. After Catwoman is gone Batman comes from behind startling Maggie saying he heard what happened to Holly Maggie upset tells Batman Holly did nothing wrong and that Strunk attacked her and she was under the impression he was going to take her away for the police but Batman says he isn’t with the police. Maggie tells Batman that Catwoman went after Strunk Batman says she can’t break the law and Maggie points out that he himself breaks the law. Batman says she is a thief and Maggie insinuates that because she is a woman he doesn’t know how to deal with her and suspects he may be attracted to her. She then asks why he is still there.
Inside Strunk’s home he is asked by his wife to take out the trash, as he walks into the alley he is attacked by Catwoman who starts to beat him with her whip a batarang then strikes her hand and another one strikes Strunk in the neck knocking him out. On a rooftop Batman tells her that Strunk must go through the proper legal channels but Catwoman says no one will believe a prostitute over a cop Batman says Jim Gordon will but Catwoman doesn’t believe Batman she then says he must have something on Gordon but Batman says he doesn’t.
Selina then closes in on Batman and says the two are always bumping into each other and that the media thinks they are partners Batman tells her she her game is up Catwoman says she likes the game. She says that now she knows there will be a war between them as she places her hand on Batman’s chest and leans in on his face Batman asks who will draw first blood Catwoman says maybe she will and kisses Batman passionately. After the kiss Catwoman hits Batman in the face with her whip and scratches him in the chest knocking him down. She leans down and says he is just another cop maybe she thinks he is a more attractive cop but still a cop and says she “doesn’t do cops”. She then says she won the first round and calls him lover then leaves. Batman then gets up and says there will be another.
At the church Holly stares out the window while Maggie tells her to brush her teeth and go to bed for school tomorrow Holly then turns around Maggie then asks what she saw Holly says nothing Maggie says she misses Selina to but she’s not coming back. Outside in a near rooftop Catwoman stares at the church silently.
