The kidnappers meanwhile are loading the kids into a crate that says Trident Shipping. They tell the kids to zip it and lock it. A guard comes flying in with his eyes bleeding. Cat really does go for the eyes. His eyes were completely ripped out. Patty tells him he will be just fine and then shoots him in the head. Patty heads into the warehouse to find who did it.

Since Bruce is a Wane Alfred has no choice but to let him choose his own path. James ask Alfred what it is he wants from him. Alfred just wants him to try and talk some sense into Bruce. Bruce has been listening and Alfred is not pleased. Bruce tells Alfred he worries to much. Bruce then turns to James and admits what he has been doing. James says talking can help.
