Robin clashes with Catwoman, both of them looking for plgue survivor Kendall Stuart, though for very different reasons. He soon realises that the most efficient way of finding Stuart will be to work together with Catwoman, a measure Alfred is somewhat dubious about. Meanwhile, the Clench continues to claim many victims, including the Palmoy family, and one of the most recentloy infected is Montoya's boyfriend Johnny. Panic sets in as news of the plague is broadcast and exit and entrance to Gotham forbidden. Robin and Catwoman track down Kendall Stuart, but so does mercenary Tracker, who attack them, intending to take Stuart himself. Azrael, sent by Batman, also arrives on the scene.
